The Timm's Hill Trail is groomed for both classic and skate skiing.  It's groomed at minimum weekly and after each snowfall as necessary to ensure a quality skiing experience.

 

From the south end, the first 3 miles of the trail start out fairly flat and are great for beginners and families.  The next 7 miles get progressively hillier and offer more of a challenge for the intermediate to advanced skiers.

 

The Timm's Hill Trail connects the Camp Forest Springs Trails and Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails to the High Point Ski Trails, creating over 70km of connected trails, offering some of the finest cross-country skiing in the mid-west.

 

 

 

 

Snowshoeing, skijoring, and well behaved pets are welcome on the Timm's Hill Trail,

the Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails, and the High Point Ski Trails.

I never updated this!  The problems and repairs were more extensive than I originally thought.  I replaced all the bogie wheels on the tracks.  I got the repairs done in late March and tested everything before the snow melted.

 

Everything is ready for next winter.  Hopefully it will be less eventful - grooming wise!!

We received 3" of snow Sunday and 3" Monday.  Unfortunately, while grooming Monday night, another bogie wheel failed on my tracks.  Parts have been ordered, but will be at least a week before I'm grooming again.

 

The weather forecast is predicting 8"-12" of snow for Thursday, so it will probably take several days of grooming once I get the parts installed.

Parts finally arrived and I got everything installed.  I packed the 10" of snow on the THT tonight and will groom again Saturday to clean it up and set tracks.  Should be good skiing on Sunday, the one warm day (if you call 11F "warm"!) before another Deep Freeze sets in.

 

The THT is now groomed to the Beginner/Blue Loop on the Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails.

The Beginner/Blue Loop on the Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails is now open and groomed, so when I get the THT groomed, it will connect to the Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails.

I packed, groomed, and set tracks on the THT in Taylor County from Rustic Rd #1 to the County Line.  It should set-up pretty good with the cold temps, but it might be a little soft and rough in spots.

 

I also groomed and set tracks on the rest on the THT, from the Taylor/Price County Line (Mile 2) north to Hwy to Heaven (Mile 7).

 

The High Point Trails are being packed and should be groomed this weekend.

The section of the THT in Taylor County is closed and will not be groomed until January 1, 2014.

Until then, the groomed THT will not connect to the Rib Lake Ski & Snowshoe Trails.

 

It's was really warm Saturday - 35!  That melted the snow off the trees, so there's a lot of clumps & bumps of snow on the trail.  And now it's going to REALLY get cold Sunday thru Thursday. 

 

I won't be able to groom the THT until Tuesday or Wednesday.

I was able to break-up the layer of ice on top of the snow.  There are a few rough spots, but overall I think it groomed pretty nice.
