Observation Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Reminder: The North Section of the Yellow Trail will be closed to cross-country skiing the rest of the 2020-2021 season, due to logging operations and hauling of logs while the ground is frozen. The remaining sections of the Yellow and Red trails are groomed, however skiers will need to turn around and come back on the same sections of trail. Both the Red and Yellow trails are not completed loops due to logging activity. Our groomer has made a large loop on the Red trail that will turn skiers around for the return on the same trail. Unfortunately skiers will have to turn around in the parking lot of Loop Flowage on the Yellow trail to return. Please check with nature center staff for the most recent updates, as things can change before trail reports can be updated.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Beautiful day for skiing at one of the most scenic locations in NE Wisc. Nice fresh groom although tracks were soft. Unfortunately the yellow trail north of the flowage (and at least part of red trail) is plowed and unskiable. I wish we would have known and avoided that mile of walking. [ It has been reported multiple times that some of the northern trails are closed due to logging -- Ed. ]

We have made a loop on the Red Trail to return skiers to the main trails, and avoid the logging activities. Snowshoe and walking trails are also packed. No ski pass required, donations are appreciated.
