TRAIL REPORT

Now that the temps are falling, everyone's attention turns into winter riding. Please be patient with riding on the Eisenbahn rail. It will not open until December 15th or later so please be patient. The road routes around the Ketlle Moraine are always open however so have fun and be safe.

GUIDELINES FOR THE EISENBAHN OPENING;

 1-The trail must be declared “OPEN” for ATV use on  Facebook at "ATV Eisenbahn State Trail". Like / Follow that  page and you will get notices to the opening and closings. Pretty nice feature. You won't have to call in anymore if you check Facebook
If you don't have Facebook, you can still call the hotline at  262-277-1503. 

2- The predicted high must be less than 29º for the entire day.

Even if the hotline says it is open, if it is 29 or higher, please stay off. In Fond du Lac for instance, the hotline is ran by the Visitors Bureau. They can open the trail on a cold Friday and are off over the weekend where the temps can climb well above 30. The hotline will still say it's open, but the temps say it's not. Use good judgement and be self policing.


 3- Must not be in the midst or aftermath of a snowstorm. (Not in FDL)

Please give the snow and groomers a chance to set before atv's resume. Usually 24 hours


 4- 25 MPH throughout entire trail, 35 MPH on roads, 10 MPH through towns.

 

PARKING


1- The BP gas station on the southern edge of Kewaskum 

on Hwy 45.


2- Eden Community park in Eden.

As you ride throughout Fond Du Lac county on the Eisenbahn trail, you will notice these NO ATV signs posted at many road crossings. Please be reassured that atv's/utv's are permitted on the Eisehbahn as long as the temperature and hotlines declare it open.

If you are wondering about all the new road routes with all the new signs being posted, you may have a lot of questions on what is open and legal to ride on, and what is not. In a nutshell, all town roads in a particular township can be open once posted. This is only the town roads, not the county roads ( letters), state highways (numbers)or city or village roads. Please become familiar with the township roads in the town you want to ride in and their municipal boundry. It is a very involved process and fortunately there is a website that has all the needed information. go to or click   www.KettleTrails.com for all the much needed information.
