Jon Daniels, Marathon County Motorized Recreation Administrator, has announced effective at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 snowmobile trails in Zones 1 and 3 of Marathon County will open.  Once these trails open, all five zones will be open.  Designated trails in all zones will open at the same time for ATVs if the air temperature is 28°F and below.

Please check Marathon County website and use the current trail map to avoid any closed trails.  Riders must check the Marathon County website for posted trail closures before every ride.

Ride with care as trail conditions vary from FAIR to EXCELLENT.  Jon cautions riders to be careful as some fields and wind-swept areas may be rough due to a lack of snow.  Also, there are reports of icy areas hidden by the fresh snow which significantly increases stopping distances.

Remember, 55 MPH is the night time speed limit for snowmobiles everywhere in Wisconsin and Marathon County snowmobile trails are always CLOSED to UTVs.

For up-to-date Marathon County trail conditions, please call the 24-hour snow and trail condition hotline at 1-888-575-7669 or check the website at

For more information, please contact the Park Department at 715-261-1550.
