Press release

This week’s forecasted winter warm-up will close all snowmobile trails in Kewaunee County beginning at 6 a.m. Monday (Feb. 22).

The trails had opened on Feb. 17 in sections 1 (Red River area), 2 (Algoma area), and 4 (Kewaunee area) as well as use of the Ahnapee State Trail. The trail conditions were not satisfactory for section 3 (Luxemburg area) to open, so it had remained closed.

Kewaunee County has six snowmobile clubs that maintain the County’s nearly 205 miles of trailas well as give condition updates to the Promotions & Recreation Department.

“We had a decent five-day run and we would like to stay open longer; unfortunately, our snowmobile clubs know that the predicted warmer weather will deteriorate our snow base, making the trails unusable,” said Dave Myers, director of Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation. “We are hoping to reopen the snowmobile trails again this season if the weather cooperates.”

The Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation Department will continue to update trail conditions on its 24/7 hotline, 920-388-7199, if conditions change.
