2018-2019 Snowmobile Conditions

PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAILS!

Many of our trails go across private land. The easements are December 1st to March 31st ONLY and ONLY for snowmobiling (not ATVs). It is through the generosity of other people that we have the snowmobile trails that we have. It only takes one person to ride through someone's field for the landowner to decide not to allow the trail to go across their land anymore, leading to a closed segment of trail. PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAILS!

We have several volunteer snowmobile clubs in Aitkin County. Below are the contacts for the clubs. Please consider volunteering with a club to help maintain the trails.
