Snowmobiling In Northern Minnesota: A Memory Making Adventure

Winter is here, and you’re itching to get your sled on the trails and cover some ground, have a good time with friends, and see new country. The Grand Rapids, MN area snowmobile trail system is pretty amazing, and here’s why.

The trail system is huge and extensive

Grand Rapids Trail Clubs and the Minnesota DNR jointly manage hundreds of miles of an extensive, groomed trail system, all for your enjoyment. Grab a map and get out and enjoy the fun. Do you like to mix it up? Pepper your snowmobile expedition with stops for food and drink. If stretching your legs is a fun way to break up snowmobile trekking, carry snowshoes on your sled, and take a break to bushwack with a walk through the woods before you get on the sleds again.

You can have your choice of any nature experience you wish.

Want to ride through a deep forest? In a wide open stretch of land where the sky goes on forever? Over a never-ending lake that dwarfs your understanding of “big”? Under a vast, star filled sky? You can ride it all on the Grand Rapids area snowmobile trails. There’s a reason that northern MN is loved by many, and the snowmobile scene here will give you an idea why! Leave with a little piece of northern Minnesota in your heart, and vow to return.

You’ll see country you never dreamed of. Snowmobiling lets you cover a lot of ground, and get into some very special wild places that would be difficult to access on foot.
