Oneida and Vilas County snowmobile trails to open today

December 20, 2019 by Jacob Friede

According to a press release issued by the Oneida County Forestry, Land, and Recreation Department, the Oneida County funded snowmobile trail system will open for the 2019-2020 winter season at 8 a.m. today.

There are two exceptions however.

On the Hodag Sno-Tails trails near McNaughton, the funded trail corridor 12 is closed from TIN 247 (intersection of trail 12 and 47) through TIN 842 (Hwy. 47).

On the Three Lakes trails, the funded trail alternate 13 is closed from TIN 122 (Rice Lake Rd.) through TIN 022 (intersection north of Burnham Lake).

In addition to these segments, all lake trails in Oneida County remain closed and are considered unsafe. This will be their status until they are clearly marked by the snowmobile clubs.  

Riders are advised to stay on trails and exercise caution as they are in rough, early season condition.

Vilas County trails also open at 8 a.m today, announced last week. Iron County trails opened Dec. 5. 

For more information, contact the Oneida County Forestry Department at 715-369-6140.
