Woodruff DNR Service Center area

Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest - Little by little, Mother Nature is trying to make the state forest look like winter in January. Snow depths range from 6 inches in the southern half, to a little over a foot in the northern half of Vilas County. More snow is in the forecast. The wildlife is loving the lower snow depths as outdoor enthusiasts spy many rabbit, squirrel and mouse tracks everywhere. Shrikes have been seen visiting area bird feeders; and fox and coyotes can be spotted from time to time as they prowl for their next meal. Some eagles and swans are still in the area where there is still open water on the riverways. - Rosalie Richter, visitor services associate

Cross-country ski trails were groomed Jan. 22-23 and are generally in good condition. Escanaba, Madeline and Raven trails are tracked for classic skiing with a firm base with some fluffy snow covering. Good conditions overall. About 10- 12 inches of snow in the woods. Some oak leaf debris but fluff snow should cover. McNaughton trails were groomed for skate and classic skiing. Skater's loop was groomed with good conditions to the warming shelter. The loop around the lake is fair at best with some very thin spots. Overall the classic loops are in good condition. The blue loop around Helen Lake is thin. Trails still have uneven areas as well. - Dan Jacoby and Tony Martinez, park and recreation specialists
