11 is open to 102 after that it appeared closed as they had a bank plowed on South Boundary RD. I was on most of those trails Tuesday- Thursday and all were for the most part in great shape. Lake Gogebic was a bit rough if you want to ride that, no slush when i was on it. Trail 1 on the west side of the Lake has been moved a little.

You can do the same. It just goes a bit farther west and runs along the Presque Isle River in a few spots. This is what I was told by the bartender at HOOP. I remember seeing a trail going to Fish Tales. Like Badger said Trails were great except for the typical few places In Silver City that run along the HWY. We just put on 500 miles in the UP, Vilas and Florence County. The only bad trail was 2 mile stretch outside of Lando Lakes that I assume can not be groomed because of a swamp.

BIGFOOT63, Did you find the information you needed?
I know that area quite well.
There are quite a few fun options. You can do the variety long route or the basic straight shot.


The reroute on trail 1 has some nice cruising sections and some mellow twisties. It is a nice little ride for one direction of your route. There are feeder trails going into the resorts. There is a big section of logging that will change conditions on those trails.


BTW, Gas update. They just added another option in Silver City to fill at the AmericInn. That may help some with planning.
