Kewaunee Snowmobile Sections Open

Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department reports that all four snowmobile sections in Kewaunee County are open. Trails are reported to be in fair-poor condition due to early-season conditions. In addition, the Black Ash Swamp north of Algoma remains closed at this time. Riders should use caution because trail conditions may be less than ideal in certain areas. Plowed and open fields may lack snow cover, and riders should watch out for water, slush, icy patches and drifting snow along the trails. Snowmobilers should also stay on the marked trails and respect adjoining private property and the privacy of its owners. Hundreds of gracious landowners are responsible for the county’s state-funded and club trails. The Department of Natural Resources reminds all snowmobilers of Wisconsin law changes in the past year regarding trail passes, including one that requires riders with a valid Wisconsin public-use registration to buy an annual Wisconsin snowmobile trail pass.
