Snow Depth and Groomed Trail Conditions

Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area

Trail conditions:

OHV, OHM, ATV - with the recent snow fall you can expect the IR OHV SRA trails and hilly areas to be more challenging, and slippery - use extra caution and safety procedures. Winter weather and high winds may have caused downed trees and brush to be on the trails. Snowmobile - snowmobile trail gates are closed at this time. The trail base does not have sufficient snow depth yet. We are still seeing quite a bit of water and insufficient ice thickness in our swamps and wetlands. Clubs and area trail crews are continuing to pack swamps and wetlands to help the ice freeze thick enough to support grooming equipment. Please use caution on the trails and stay to the right. Trails are rough right now, especially in the swamps. No motorized vehicles other than snowmobiles are allowed on state snowmobile trails or grant-in-aid snowmobile trails.
