Issue Date: September 27, 2018
The weekend of Oct. 12-14 the Clip Clop Trail Riders will hold their annual fall open-house at the Middle Inlet trails and campground near Lake Mary. Hosts will be on hand to welcome overnight campers and day riders and to tell the story of the Middle Inlet trails and camp.

Over the past four years the Clip Clop Riders have invested their time and skills to develop and maintain a campground and trail system for riders. Over 20 miles of well-marked trails wind through hardwood forest in south central Marinette County. The campground, in a large open field, offers campers fire rings, picnic tables, highlines for tying horses, and an outhouse. On a recent September weekend over 25 trailers with over 40 horses were using the Middle Inlet Campground. Over the summer riders from all over Wisconsin have enjoyed the camping area and trail system.
This year the Clip Clop Club has added an additional one mile trail and moved a section of trail off the forest road to avoid traffic concerns. The club has added a hitching post, an additional fire ring and picnic table as well as improved signage for trail riders and motor vehicles.
The most significant accomplishment of 2018 is the installation of a new well. This development is possible due to generous donations from the Wisconsin Horse Council, the Marinette & Menominee Area Community Foundation and the Great Northern Paint Horse Club.
Donations from other organizations as well as from individuals help maintain and improve both campground and trails. Voluntary donations for campground and trail use have also provided a valuable source of income for the care of the trails and campground. The campground is open to the public and most of the trail system is open to non-motorized vehicles.
