Edited for clarity.
From Suring to Townsend it's pretty much closed from last Friday nights storm/tornado. All trails and several campgrounds in Oconto and Langlade counties are closed until further notice. With the extent of the damage it may be weeks or even months before it's back to remotely normal.
All of the cleanup in the national forest will be done by federal employees only. Clubs are not allowed to help. This is no small task and can be quite dangerous to those not familiar with twisted and tangled trees.
The hardest hit areas from what I gathered are Maiden Lake and Crooked Lake. They may not have power restored for weeks.
WPS said entire networks will have to be rebuilt from the ground up in the hardest hit areas.
I might try and take a ride through Sunday for a look see and report back here.
I hope any inmates affected are OK.
I ran up to Rhinelander on sunday to check my cabin for storm damage.
I cut up through the menominee reservation on both 47 and 55. Those where open at least to 64.
East of antigo, hwy. 52 is closed over to 55. Sound like it will take at least 2 weeks to clear.
The trails around harrison hills are likely closed or at least blocked in many areas. The trailhead on county B, just south of Nutzees bar, looked like it got hit hard.
Power was out in a few areas for sure, as i saw signs on businesses saying as much, so gas and food stops may be a bit more scare in some of those areas.
Thanks for the updates guys.

One of the guys running the Tomahawk dual sports club posted to FB this morning, saying they have the Enterprise Trail system cleared out now.
that is between Pelican lake and Hwy 17 near Gleason/Parrish.
He's an Inmate here, i'll see if I can get him to update in this thread.... now if I just knew his screen name here.
just found these updates...copy- pasted.
"As of 07/25/19 all trails in Lincoln County are now open including the Harrison Hills trail system. Please be careful as there is logging equipment out there and people may still be cleaning up and doing trail maintenance."
"ENTERPRISE TRAIL SYSTEM is now clear of fallen trees"
There is still some clean up going on as well as some logging equipment in some areas to help clean up. I haven't made it west to see what the tornado damaged near Tripoli (Chequamegon National forest) on the Price and Oneida county border.
Yes sir I finally got my account registered properly lol
Bout time, n00b!
Stay outta CSM and watch your step in JoMomma.
PM me if you need any help.
You might be able to get some of these clowns to help with trail maintenance and building as well.
Stay away from @Blue Mule
You never know where he's been.
Just because SW Wisconsin is better?
On my way home from Nebarska I routed through the Mountain area to see what's up. I came in from the west via hwy 64.
About all I can say is carnage... everywhere. It''ll be OK for a bit then just trees flattened. Every campsite, trail etc and many smaller roads are closed with signage. It's going to be a while...
I rode Hwy-55 this weekend to Hwy 32, and there was just swaths of trees clipped of about 12ft high. Crews were still working on power lines etc. di
Chute Pond CG is now open.
This is about 1/4 south on Mountain Lakes road off of 64.
Looking north towards 64.
Farr Lake camp site.
Looking from the campsite to and across the road.
The only way any of these roads, trails etc are able to cleared are with saws and bulldozers. It's going to be a slow process.
The process is definitely going to take some time in that area, so much clean up! Looks like a great place to ride, I definitely need to explore so much more in the north country. Just got my GSA and getting started, always enjoy these posts and learning new places.
Wind storm or what? How far from Boulder Junction?
I believe there was a tornado but the majority of the damage was by a derecho or straight line winds.
This happened July 19th.
