WOOD COUNTY, Wis. (WSAW) - The Wood County Parks and Forestry Department has closed all snowmobile trails in Wood County, with the exception of trails maintained by the Bakerville Sno Rovers. The trails are closed effective immediately.

The department says warm temperatures and deteriorating trail conditions lead to the closure. Trails will reopen if we receive sufficient snowfall.
