DOUGLAS COUNTY TRAIL UPDATE 3/16/2020.
All Snowmobile and Winter ATV trails under management of the Douglas County Forestry Department are officially closed for the season.
In addition, all year-round recreational trails are temporarily closed at this time except for the following trail segments:
1. Gandy Dancer Trail – MN/WI Stateline to Patzau.
2. Saunders Grade – MN/WI Stateline to Schallameir Road parking lot.
3. Wild Rivers Trail – Douglas Co./Washburn Co. line to a point 500 feet north of County Highway Y.
4. Wild Rivers Trail – North Trailhead parking lot (County Highway A) to the Harroun Road.
It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property.
Please share this info with anyone that you believe would be interested…our goal is to inform as many trail riders as possible.
Douglas County Ski Trails
The service roads and parking lots are plowed. The Ski trails are still covered in snow but are packed hard and our groomer is unable to cut new tracks in the packed snow. Grooming is suspended until further notice.
Thank you again to all the members of the Northwest Trails Association for the amazing work that they do to open and maintain over 300 miles of winter recreation trails in Douglas County!
This report was prepared March 16th, 2020.
