Arrowhead Trail

1-10-19: Base: 2-3" Snow Depth 14-22" The Arrowhead State Trail is fully groomed except for the portion from the Landing spur trail (southeast of Hoodoo Lake) to the Orr North trail. Those parts that are groomed are in good to very good condition. We anticipate grooming the remaining ungroomed portion (Orr North Trail south to the Landing spur trail) today, Jan 10.Use caution while riding at all times, especially riding through swamps and wetlands. Multiple riders and groomers have gone through thin ice on multiple trails in the last week. Also please be aware of and slow down for logging activity throughout the trail, travel at appropriate speeds and stay to the right. No motorized vehicles other than snowmobiles are allowed on the Arrowhead or Grant-in-Aid trails. (Conditions reported by DNR)

Taconite Spur Trail

1-10-19 Base: 2-5 " Depth 14-22" The spur trail leading from the Taconite to the Oasis Bar and Grill in Britt has been rerouted due to landowner issues. The reroute goes from the Taconite east of Hwy 53 (opposite side from the Oasis) to Peppard Rd, crosses Hwy 53 at the Peppard Rd Jct, and follows the ditch south to Peel Rd and to the Oasis. (Conditions reported by DNR)

Taconite Trail

1-10-19 Base: 2-4 Snow Depth 12-20" The Taconite State Trail from Hwy 53 to Hwy 73 and from Tower to the Arrowhead junction was groomed Wednesday, Jan 9. Tower to Ely will be groomed Thursday, Jan 10. Going east of Hwy 53 has been groomed to the Big Aspen area and will be groomed as far as wetlands and ice thickness allow (ice remains thin in swamps and areas with moving water). Where groomed, the trail is in fair to good condition. A short distance east of the Bear Head State Park road is a steep hill that is icy and has created issues for groomers. Use caution in this area while riding. The Taconite around Big Aspen going east to the Pike River trail bridge has not yet been groomed because ice is not thick enough in a number of wetlands between Big Aspen and Pfeiffer Lake campground and also just west of the Arrowhead trail junction. We anticipate grooming this section Friday, Jan 11. The spur trail leading from the Taconite to the Oasis Bar and Grill in Britt has been rerouted due to landowner issues. No motorized vehicles other than snowmobiles are allowed on the Taconite State Trail or on Grant-in-Aid snowmobile trails. (Conditions reported by DNR)
