Kewaunee County opened snowmobile trails in sections one (Red River area) and two (Algoma area) on Jan. 10, including a portion of the Ahnapee State Trail. This amounts to approximately 70 miles to ride.
Six snowmobile clubs maintain Kewaunee County’s nearly 205 miles of trail and provide condition updates to the county’s Promotions and Recreation Department.
“Snowmobilers should always exercise caution,” said Dave Myers, director of Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation. “Please look for bare spots in the fields and icy patches, as well as groomers, as clubs work to maintain the trails. While it is exciting to have trails open, snowmobilers are asked to respect private property when riding and never leave marked trails.”
Snowmobilers must buy an annual Wisconsin Snowmobile Trail Pass through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The cost is $10 for Wisconsin residents who are members of a snowmobile club that’s affiliated with the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC), $30 for Wisconsin residents not affiliated with AWSC, and $50 for out-of-state residents.
