Northern Michigan Snowmobile

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.)

Drag all loaded up for it's trip to Gaylord to get the Dubie Welding and Fabrication touch. We had found many cracks at the end of season and the pan is wore beyond it's life so it is getting a complete refurbish. When it comes back, it will be just like new and will look great behind our new groomer! HUGE thanks to Keith Churill and Alger SORVA for taking it down with them as they were making a run downstate and had an empty trailer for the trip! ... See MoreSee Less

trail number seven at the north end of the Crawford County line starts at Otsego County line goes all way up through Gaylord they have fence running the whole distance of the trail that will solve people on the railroad tracks in parts they have big rocks by at Seagull lake and another big area of it wouldn't post on the ground I snapped his pictures today as I drove up to Gaylord A long old 27. If they could bring that fence down into Frederick that would solve the railroad trespass problem at least put a big dent in it ... See MoreSee Less
