Tracks are Set! Now we wait...

We wait now for more snow and cold air. I was able to get out and lay down the tracks for the classic ski trails. They are extremely thin all around and no coverage in spots along the road on the way out of the park on the East side.

One thing I need to strongly suggest is please do NOT walk on the track portion of trails. I need the base to set up as good as possible so the trails can be enjoyed throughout the winter.

The plan is to have a short skate-ski route that follows the road in the park. I hope to expand this next year on some of the other trails, but that depends on how much wider I can go in crucial spots.

A new map is going to be posted on this site hopefully by the weeks end.  More posts will also be put in.  Now I get that these are not the most ellaborate things in the world, but it will work until we get funds for something much more substantial.  I will look to distribute maps to City Hall, Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce, Tomahawk Main Street, and more to come.

If anybody wishes to donate towards the grooming and future improvements i.e. lights for a night loop, real sign posts and arrows, please send and make checks payable to:

Bradley Park Trail Crew
W6300 Camp Rice Point Rd
Tomahawk, WI 54487

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with your friends and family.

Hopefully, we'll be able to enjoy the trails in the park soon.
