Partial Opening of Snowmobile Trails in Kewaunee County
KEWAUNEE COUNTY, WI – The snowmobile trails in Kewaunee County will open in two of four sections on Monday, January 10, 2022 at 9AM, and one of those sections includes a portion of the Ahnapee State Trail.
Trails will open in sections 1 (Red River area) and 2 (Algoma area) amounting to approximately 70 miles to ride. At this time, sections 3 (Luxemburg area) and 4 (Kewaunee area) will remain closed due to lesser snow totals in those regions.
Kewaunee County has six snowmobile clubs that maintain the County’s nearly 205 miles of trail as well as give condition updates to the Promotions & Recreation Department.
“The open trails are in fair condition, however snowmobilers should always exercise caution. Please look for bare spots in the fields and icy patches as well as groomers as clubs work to maintain the trails,” said Dave Myers, Director of Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation. “While it is exciting to have trails open, snowmobilers are asked to respect private property when riding and never leave marked trails.”
To use public trails, snowmobilers are required to buy an annual Wisconsin Snowmobile Trail Pass through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Trails passes are $10 for Wisconsin residents who are members of a snowmobile club that is affiliated with the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC), $30 for Wisconsin residents not affiliated with AWSC and $50 for out-of-state residents.
Snowmobilers can call the Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation Department 24/7 hotline for trail condition updates, (920) 388-7199 and find maps on the Kewaunee County website www.kewauneeco.org on the Promotions & Recreation Department page under the Trails section as well as the Visit Kewaunee County website www.visitkewauneecounty.com under the Explore section.
