POSSIBLE TRAIL CLOSURES – Spooner Area
At this time we have a very definite possibility of losing (2) of our snowmobile trail segments for the upcoming winter season.
- The “Cargill Corporation” has chosen to close the trail on their land that is on the north side of Highway 70 east of Spooner. If an adequate reroute cannot be found it will necessitate the closure of the trail from its connection to Trail 4 in Beaver Brook north to the junction with the Wild River Trail.
- Dean Patrick, of Patrick Realty, has indicated he will close the trail on his property north of Spooner High School due to vandalism. Again, if an adequate reroute cannot be found it will necessitate the closure of Trail 140 from its intersection with Trail 7A, just east of County Highway “A,” east to the Wild River Trail.
We are asking anyone that can offer assistance across other private land on either of these trails to give Jim Dienstl a call at 715-635-8661.
TRAIL REPORT: Trails are doing ok….rather dusty…we hope to have the grader back in business soon. We are needing helpers to use our small brushers and continue up and down all trails to clear “stop ahead” and “stop” signs. If you have a couple or three hours to spare, call me and I’ll update on where to go next.
Also, in Sept. we need a crew to do the new approach at SPRING CREEK bridge. As always, keep an eye on trails so we keep them safe. Thank you to Trail Patrol guys for helping. I know George Frendt was a busy guy with signing and picking brush from the last storm! Good job! Thanks……Fitz
Equipment Report: Some much needed maintenance has been completed on the grader, broken frame rail, broken spring in the tongue and new rudders on the rear. Also, adjusted the tracks on the tractor. Making some small progress on the brusher. Have not had a lot of time to work on it. Looks like that may improve in the near future. Floyd
