Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The trail was very fast but but wearing thin in spots with a few rocks. On the return trail there is a open creek cutting across the trail. The exact location is posted on a map by the first intersection. It's at the bottom of a hill with no warning.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
I did the 5k loop as the sun was setting. Some of the parts in the second half had a lot of baby trees coming up and could use some mowing (or at this point more snow). The creek crossing was unexpected, and a sign at the top or trailhead would have been nice. Since I wasn't exactly where I needed to be and didn't ski jump, I ended up rear in the creek and hurting days later. I would wait until there is more snow to ski this one, and/or make sure that you know how to navigate the creek. It is towards the end of the trail, on all loops.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Groomed in about 10 inches of snow at Penokee today. The tracks look excellent, and the woods are beautiful. Penokee is open to skijoring, snowshoeing, and classic cross country skiing. There is a 3-sided shelter on the trail that can be used for camping, or just taking a break. Get out there and check out this gem of a trail!
