Snowmobiling

Washburn County boasts some of the most scenic snowmobiling in the state. Over 240 miles of groomed trails wind through public forests and across private land covering literally hundreds of thousands of acres. Washburn County is unmatched for wilderness sledding that is close to lodging and amenities. Our local trails link to the largest network of snowmobile trails in the Midwest. Hard-working local snowmobile clubs have developed a top-notch trail system that crosses public and private lands, lakes, streams and bridges. The varied terrain includes hardwood and evergreen forests, wetlands and farm fields. You'll see towering pines, rolling hills and deep valleys. Nearly 1,000 lakes in the area offer more than 30,000 acres of lake riding. 

Most trails are maintained from early December through March, depending on conditions. Always check trail conditions prior to riding. Many of our trails cross private land so please be respectful of our landowners who have so generously allowed us to build a trail across their property.
