With Trail #8 right in front of Two Rivers, you have instant access to the awesome Michigan AND Wisconsin snowmobile trail systems. Every year we hear that the trails in this area are the best around! The high snow fall levels and fewer riders in this area seem to be the perfect combination for trail riding, especially as you go East and North!
There are approximately 450 miles of groomed snowmobile trails within the Ottawa National Forest. These trails are maintained through a cooperative effort between the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, numerous local snowmobile clubs, and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service.
Have you ever wanted to try and ride off-trail? It is legal to ride on any unplowed road in the Ottawa National Forest. This makes for some great off trail riding in the area - both for novice riders and for very experienced riders. Please make sure you are prepared if you decide to go off trail. Both Tim and I like to ride off-trail, so don't be afraid to ask us any questions before you head out!
Generally, snowmobile season runs from December 1 through March 31. This includes groomed snowmobile trails and unplowed Ottawa National Forest System Roads, and other areas as allowed.
We have snowmobile trail maps available in the office - one per group is available for free. They are $2 for each additional map.
Here are some local Snowmobiling clubs and other Facebook pages for trail and groomer reports:
Fun fact! Both Tim and Jen are very involved in the Sno Valley Riders Snomobile Club - Tim is even a GROOMER!
