Trail Alert: Drummond Ski Trail – Drummond, WI

From: Arfmon2011
North Lake Owen Drive to Old Highway 63 Trailhead

Due to a high wind event on Jul. 1, trail is mostly OBLITERATED! This is noted at North Lake Owen Drive, but not at Old Highway 63. So if heading south (or easterly), the sign recommends an alternative route. If heading north (or westerly) same sign, but also says TRAIL OBLITERATED ….

Had to bushwack my way out of there after 2 miles in from the north. The trail is GONE! DO NOT ATTEMPT!!

From what I understand the forest service will clear that area due to old-growth trees that they want. So volunteer clearing is non-existent.

Use FR 213 or FR 217 to get around this hazardous area

      Thank you Mike, but I do not have an account at Facebook. Therefore when I go to Discussions, there is nothing there. No link to Trail Conditions, It seemed natural to post here under trail alerts since no one else had previously. Guess everyone’s on Facebook but me! (And that’s just fine :))

        Arfmon – You did the right thing and thank you for posting the closed section of NCT just north of Lake Owen Drive! This is something that I should have done so that anyone visiting the NCTA site could read this. To many tasks, so little time!!!
