Closed for the Season

As of 3/15/21, the Wood City Riders trail system is officially closed for the season. Although it was a short season without much snow, our trails were in good shape considering and were enjoyed by many riders both local and from out of town. A huge thanks to all of our club volunteers throughout the year that enable us to have such a great trail system. If you weren't part of the action - NOW is the time to get involved, we are already starting on preparatory work for projects and next season. Our Club is active 12 months a year, and summer is a great time to join us for a meeting including our annual Steak Fry and our annual BBQ meetings. Send us an email or send in the membership form from the website - we look forward to meeting you!

January 7th Trail Report

Wood City Riders Trail Report – January 7th, 2020

Cloquet Minnesota

 

We are open and the trails range from good to poor due to low snow conditions.  The Club has been busy rolling and packing since our first snowfalls, and have groomed all trails at least once, and some twice.  We have a firm and solid base and will be in great shape once we get a decent snowfall in the future.

 

Big Lake Trail East & West -  This trail was groomed this week for the first time.  There is a wet area near Connor’s Rd on the East segment.  Watch for signs.  WCR crews will be out next week working to fix this area – watch for equipment on the trail.

 

Iverson TrailThis trail has been groomed multiple times and is in good condition. 

 

Lumberjack/Brookston Connector/Saginaw Spur -  This has been groomed multiple times and is in good condition.  Snow gets a little thin on the tops of the hills and on some corners.

 

Cloquet/Scanlon City Trail – This trail was groomed for the first time this week.  It is still poor in areas due to lack of snow.  Take a ride over to the Rendezvous in Scanlon for a bite to eat and some pulltabs once things open back up next week.

 

EARLY SEASON CONDITIONS ARE PRESENT – Watch for rocks, obstructions, water and other hazards.  RIDE WITH CAUTION AND REPORT ANY UNSAFE CONDITIONS VIA WCR FB, WEB or TEXT MSG.

 

All water crossings on the system including Big Lake and the St Louis River @ Hwy 2 are not checked or staked by the club.  We are hearing that sleds are using both crossings but we urge caution for anyone doing so.  Please stay on the packed tracks, watch for hazards and maintain a safe speed!

 

Ride Right, Ride Safe, Ride Sober!

Wood City Riders Trail Report – December 31, 2020

Cloquet Minnesota

 

The Season is ON!!!  We have sufficient ice for snowmobile trail system use, and yesterday’s storm should help provide an excellent base to work with.  The Club has been busy packing, rolling and clearing the trails in preparation for the start of grooming operations. 

 

Big Lake Trail East & West -  Trail has been cleared and packed (Thank you to the volunteer WCR members for this!)  This trail will be groomed next week after repairs are complete to one of the 2 track groomers.

 

Iverson TrailTrail was packed by sleds, and rolled after the first snowfall prior to Christmas.  WCR ran the groomer through on 12/28 and panned/groomed the entire length.  It will be panned/groomed again on 1/1.  Watch out for brush cutting equipment on the new re-route during the day.

 

Lumberjack/Brookston Connector/Saginaw Spur -  This trail was panned/groomed on 12/29 and will be groomed/panned again on 1/1. 

 

Cloquet/Scanlon City Trail – This trail was cleared and packed by WCR club volunteers around Christmas.  It will be groomed/panned next week after repairs to the 2 track groomer.

 

EARLY SEASON CONDITIONS ARE PRESENT – Watch for rocks, obstructions, water and other hazards.  RIDE WITH CAUTION AND REPORT ANY UNSAFE CONDITIONS VIA WCR FB, WEB or TEXT MSG.
