Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula

Trail Report Map
March 30, 2019 – 2:45 pm update: Best places for riding in for the last weekend of riding on official snowmobile trails will be in the snow belts of the Eastern U.P. – Newberry to Grand Marais to Munising – and parts of the Western U.P. and the Keweenaw Peninsula. Still snow in Northern Lower Michigan, however we have no reports of grooming for the weekend.

Official snowmobile trails close at the end of the day on Sunday. You can still ride on trails on public lands and on two-tracks and other secondary roads. Likely to be snow on the ground for a week or two (or more) into April, especially in the snow belts of the Upper Peninsula. Please DO NOT TRESPASS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY or ignored gates closing off snowmobile trails. Have a great final weekend of the season.

Here’s the Snow Depth Map to give you an idea of the areas with the best snow in the U.P. and Northern Lower Michigan. (A lot of deep snow out there.)

Well Folks it is almost time for the East Jordan Freedom Festival June 26th - 30th.

After a week full of fun events it will be time to wind down and what better way would be to come on out to the East Jordan Sno-Mobilers clubhouse on Sunday June 30th and enjoy our Sno-Lovers Breakfast. This is our only off season breakfast so come on out and see what we do all winter during the snowmobile season.

Breakfast will be served from 7 am to Noon.
$7 adults, $4 child

Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

The rail-trail section from Jackson Road to Country Club Road in Ironwood received some much needed shaping and is PAID FOR BY CLUB FUNDS AS THIS TRAIL IS NOT YET A MDNR ORV TRAIL APPROVED TO RECEIVE ORV TRAIL-PERMIT FUNDING. Dean Pearson construction & logging worked all day reclaiming gravel and doing what he could to reestablish ditches for drainage issues. Please stay off the trail due to on-going work, many large rocks, roots and logs could be on the trail awaiting a final skimming clean up run. We will have up-coming club trash pick up events as well as a signing event. We need more active members! PLEASE join us at our next event and feel how good it is to do something together for a greater good. Sacrifice an afternoon working with new friends instead of riding, it is key to our future trail expansions! #joinus #thisclubbuildstrails #dogoodfeelgood ... See MoreSee Less
