Local Trail Alerts 



Reminder:  As we receive snowfall, remember that the trails are not open until groomed and Washburn & Sawyer County Forestry offices says they are open


Some trails have been rerouted and will not be signed and ready to travel.  Use before they are officially open, may result in the trails being permanently closed.   

Please remember to stay on the trail.  Many of our trails pass through private property and can be taken away if riders abuse the use of the trails.

With the Snowmobile season starting, we get many questions about trail opening. Our unique location where 4 different counties boarder makes it not easy to give one correct answer. Here are links to resources in each county where you can get the most up to date information.

Greg Robotka Receives Award From Sawyer County Snowmobile and ATV Alliance


At their annual awards banquet held on April 11th, Alliance President Dan Schauder recognized Birchwood Bobcat Riders (former) President Greg Robotka for his extraordinary volunteerism this past year.  Greg received the "ATV/UTV Volunteer of the Year" award for his leadership as club president as well his work throughout the year on the recreational trail system in the Birchwood area.  Along with brothers Mike and Jim, Greg was also very involved in working on the equipment used by the club on the local trail system.  Nearly 100 people from the 11 snowmobile and ATV clubs that make up the Alliance were in attendance at the Big Bear Lodge.  Another highlight of the evening was the presentation of a $2,500 donation to the Alliance from the Enbridge Corporation.  This was the third year in a row for a donation from Enbridge, with $2,500 donated last year and $5,000 in 2021.
