Major Snowmobile Trail Closed For Winter in NW Douglas County
The flooding this last June caused many problems on roads and bridges throughout Northwest Wisconsin, and it's damage has extended into the winter season. The Saunders Grade is a snowmobile trail that connects riders from Corridor 2 to Minnesota in the Barnes and Perham roads region.
At the Saunder's grade, there is a 15ft deep, 200 foot long hole caused from the flooding. According to the Superior Telegram, the state is responsible for the repairs with funding from the Emergency Management Agency, but it probably won't get done over the winter.
Snowmobilers still can get to MN by going further north and across on the Wrenshall Grade, or further south on the Gandy Dancer Trail.
