Thirty Years and Still Going Strong:
Below is a link to an article from Silent Sports magazine from Feb. 1987 describing the establishing of ski trails at Gartzke. We’ve skied a long way since then.

LAMBA Volunteer Days at Jack Lake Trails
Amazing progress is being made at Jack Lake! Thank you to all who came to our first volunteer weekend and to those who continue to spend time out there in the woods working with us!
We are getting ready to open the northern loop soon and we need your help to put the final touches on it!
Our next volunteer day is set for Saturday July 29th from 8-12 with lunch provided after. Then we will need your help again to put the final touches on the Southern Loop. That volunteer day will be Saturday August 12th from 8-12 with lunch provided after.
Bring work gloves, metal garden rakes, garden shears and loppers if you can. We have about 10 of each to use if you don’t have your own. The bulk of the hard labor is done…thank goodness, no more silt fence!! We will be focusing on polish work with the rakes and cutting the last of the roots out of the trail.
Remember – LUNCH is provided!
Please RSVP on the LAMBA Website, under the Volunteer tab https://www.lambatrails.com/

Attention All Bicyclists: New Riding Opportunity: There is now a mile long loop for a single track bike trail just south of Antigo (N1985 Dump Rd.) This is the site of the old landfill which has been capped. This effort was made possible through collaboration between the city and the Antigo Bike & Ski Club. The city greatly appreciates the support and vision of Josh Zalewski and all the time he spent flagging the trail and attending meetings. Brady Koss did an excellent job assisting the trail crew with placing the initial loop in the fall of 2013. Here is the work crew after some trail maintenance on Oct.11, 2014
