Ride. Tour. Roam. Smile.

Miles of trail to explore

Ride 330 miles of expertly groomed snowmobile trails that trace beautiful frozen rivers and travel through the hills and forests of Rusk County. The area gets consistent snowfall each winter, providing a long snowmobiling season and excellent trail conditions. Nine devoted local clubs maintain the county's snowmobile trails and host a number of events throughout the year. Trails run along historic rivers and through majestic white pine forests. Some of the most scenic portions of the trail system run through the Blue Hills north of Weyerhaeuser and Bruce in western Rusk County. Three heated warming shelters are located along Rusk County's trails to serve riders. The shelters include Franklin stoves, picnic tables and an ample supply of firewood.

Snow & Trail Condition Update - March 16, 2018

March 16, 2018 3:05 pm Published by

Snowmobile Trails
Most Rusk County Snowmobile trails have closed for the season, due to poor conditions and persistent warm weather. Those that remain open are in poor condition and riding is not recommended.
Trails east of Highway 27 are completely closed, as our trails in the City of Ladysmith and west of Ladysmith.
Trails in the Weyerhaeuser area remain open- but are in poor condition and riding is not recommended. Perhaps trails in the Blue Hills Area where they are covered and shaded will still provide enjoyable riding.

Trails still open could close at any time, please check back for updates.

With the warmer temperatures open water may start to appear on stream and swamp crossings. No ice should every be considered safe, use caution.

Look for updates as conditions change, and we receive -more updates.

Cross-Country Ski Trails -
Cross- Country Ski Trail system report fair to good conditions with enjoyable conditions still present during parts of the day.

Today's Report from the Blue Hills Trails - The base is thick, plenty of skiing left.
Crusty surface Thursday morning, easier to get an edge when the temps pushed into the mid 30s yesterday and the bright sunshine helped soften the surface. The classic track was set a week ago, it's holding up well.
Freeze/thaw cycles are here, it's maple sugaring time. Follow the flow of the sap - ski the magic window each day as the trail softens; or on some days, you might find a thrilling evening sunset ski as the temps drop and a glaze is developing. If we've got snow and it's maple syrup time the skiing can be really sweet.

Today's Report from the Sisters Farm Trails - Sisters Farm Trail update. Ski trails on the East side remain pretty good, They have some crust but still provide good sking. West side is currently groomed for biking and riding has been excellent if you ride early with the low temps.

Blue Hills Trails
