Hill Lake, Perry Lake, Rabey, Washburn Lake, Remer Trails (Haypoint Jackpine Snowmobile Club) -3/11/22. I was out last night to hit a couple of the high traffic areas. -20 degrees this morning in the great northland. Pleasantly surprised the trails were in remarkable shape. I would put the Haypoint Trails at about 99% yet. Just a few corners down to Mother Earth. We do have a new logging operation on the Quadna Loop. Very passable but ride with caution as they are intersecting the trail in several spots over about a one mile area. Soo Line and Rabey Line very good! Looks like even with warmer weather next week trails will be very rideable next weekend. Welcome! Have Fun and be Safe!
