The following trail closures will be in effect until further notice:
Hodag Sno-Tails (McNaughton Area):

have been clearly marked by a local snowmobile club.
As always, the Oneida County
Forestry, Land, & Recreation Department requests riders stay on clearly marked trails.
Always exercise caution when riding a snowmobile. The trails are in rough, early season
