KEWAUNEE, WI – Snowmobilers will be able to take to nearly 205 miles of Kewaunee
County trails effective Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 6:00PM.
The Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department reports the opening of all
four snowmobile sections, which includes use of the Ahnapee State Trail that connects
Kewaunee County to Door County, as well as the communities of Algoma, Casco,
Kewaunee and Luxemburg and three Kewaunee County owned parks.
The six snowmobile clubs that check in with the Kewaunee County Promotion &
Recreation Department to share condition updates say even though the trails are groomed
and open, riders should still use caution in certain areas as most are in poor condition.
“We only have a base of 3-6 inches of snow on the trails and looking at the forecast in
the days ahead, we could end up closing by the weekend, which is why we will keep
snowmobilers updated on our 24-Hour Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation
Hotline at (920) 388-7199,” says Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion &
The Promotion & Recreation Department also reminds riders that anytime the trails are
open, they need to watch out for rough patches and ice peeking through the packed down
snow as well as thin ice on waterways and swamps, open water and slush. It’s also
important for snowmobilers to stay on the marked trails for their safety and as a courtesy
“We love having the trails in use and seeing people embrace winter in Wisconsin, but we
want to remind all snowmobilers to respect the property and privacy of the hundreds of
gracious landowners who are responsible for providing Kewaunee County its trails,” says
