Snowmobiling & Snow Report Let's Ride

Mercer is a cool place to be in the Winter! Gear up for an exhilarating snowmobile trip.

Over 250 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in southern Iron County offer a variety of riding experiences. From former railroad grade, to heavily forested land, to the wide open spaces of marked trails across the Turtle Flambeau Flowage, riders understand why Iron County is the Snow Capital of Wisconsin.

Mercer's trails are part of the 500+ miles of the Iron County Trail System. Riders may head north, all the way up into Michigan's Upper Penninsula as well as east adn west to adjoining counties. There's always something new around the bend.

MECCA Trails groomers were out last night setting tracks. The entire system has a set of tracks for strides and a skate lane. We are enjoying good conditions as we had a dusting of snow yesterday. Get out enjoy the fresh air. The snowshoe trails are all open. Check out the NEW Mercer Springs Snowshoe Trail. The virtual MECCA Trails Winterfest is going on now, with the 5K, 11K and 15K courses marked.

North Lakeland Discovery Center:

All trails except the Big River loop (portion by the river across Tower Road) and the very beginning of the Green/Yellow loop (due to lodge construction) have been groomed for single track classic skiing. We received a few inches, so tracks were put in, but they are soft and have gotten a lot of use the past few days with people skiing and walking on the trails. We do ask that once trails are rolled/groomed that you no longer hike/walk on them.Snowshoeing: If you would like to come out and snowshoe, we have all of our trails open to snowshoeing- but do ask that if you are snowshoeing on a ski trail to please stay to the side and do not walk on the groomed tracks. We do have our light blue Bog Boardwalk trail that is just for snowshoeing, it is a 2-mile loop around the lake- there is a time where it does pop out onto the main ski trail, so please just stay to the side. Another fun option is to park down at the Tower Road parking lot, and snowshoe the Big River Trail (south of Tower Road). This trail is only rolled and not groomed for skiing. You can make a fun loop by going along the river, and then taking the paved bike trail back to the parking lot!

MECCA Trails:

Mercer got 2″ of new snow in the past 36 hours. Trails were groomed on

Christmas eve. It’s early season skiing with a 3-4″ base, we’d

recommend using your “B” skis. We haven’t set tracks as yet. Snow is

in tomorrow’s forecast. Have a safe holiday season!

North Lakeland Discovery Center:

We have only a few inches of snow on the trails, even less in the woods, so our trails are currently open for hiking, fat tire biking, and if you wish to ski, it is recommended to use your rock skis. We have NOT groomed our ski trails at this time, but were able to roll them last week. As always, dogs MUST BE on a leash at all times, on campus and on the trails- out of respect for other trail users and for the safety of your dogs. Once we start grooming the trails for skiing dogs and hiking are no longer allowed on the groomed ski trails.

White Thunder Riders:

White Thunder Riders have 2 groomers running 2 shifts daily keeping the North Iron County trails in shape. Conditions vary with some areas better than others.Trails 15 – 8 – 13 are in good condition. Trail 13S is in poor condition.Trail 13C is closed. Trail 7 is closed.
