We stayed across from the Great Northern in Mercer. We put on 713 miles Wednesday night through Saturday night, and left on Sunday morning. Mercer was thin through town, but once out of town the trails were good, and the groomers were out. Presque Isle trails were good and flat, with minimal rocks. Gogebic was good, but trail 1 out of Presque Isle was shot by saturday 1-21, with pushed through corners, and a lot of rocks. 13 though rockland was rough too. Trail 2 out of Marinesco to the cisco chain was the best trail all weekend to bents camp. It was super cold on thursday when we went up to south range for the Arctic Cat demo rides.
Wednesday Night- Mercer to presque isle and back
Day 1- Mercer to south range and back
Day 2- Mercer to bents camp to gogebic to hurley and back
Day 3- Mercer to gogebic to hurley to upson and back
Overall, the conditions were anywhere from poor to excellent.
