Northern Minnesota Snowmobile Trail Conditions
COME RIDE WITH US!!!
We are located about 35 miles northeast of Grand Rapids, centrally located amongst the trail system and we have direct access to the Herb Brandstrom Trail.
Gas Stations/Convenience Stores and restaurants are located throughout the trail systems. We have snowmobile maps that we will give you and can also give you suggestions on which trails to ride and which places to stop at for gas and great food – all accessible by snowmobile!
Snowmobile Trail Conditions: We get out and ride the trails as much as we can so we will update our website with trails conditions often.
2-19-2020 SNOWMOBILE TRAIL CONDITIONS: Trails have been in excellent condition!!! Load up those sleds and get up here!! We unfortunately have not been riding yet this year (stupid I know!! We have been working on a big project that’s been taking up all our time) BUT the tool belt and paint brush are going to get thrown to the side this week cause we’re going riding. Our groups the past couple of weeks have said that the trails are phenomenal! So what are you waiting for?
Mid-week winter special: stay 2 nights (Sunday thru Thursday stays) and get the 3rd night free!!!
SNOWMOBILE CLUBS: We have 5 cabins available to accommodate large groups.
The Current trail base depth: 24 – 30 inches
The following Trails are located north and northeast of Grand Rapids. Here’s a link to open up the snowmobile map. Look for the red #20 in the top right-hand side of the map. That’s where we are located and the following is trail conditions for the trails around us.
Herb Brandstrom, Scenic Park, Little Bear, Circle T, Circle L Trails:
2-19-2020 Trails are getting groomed on a regular weekly schedule.
The Herb Brandstrom is in good shape there is just one stretch about 200 yards long that we share with loggers that is right around mile marker 17. But other than that the Herb Brandstrom is a good runner all the way through.
Trails are in VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT CONDITION

(DNR) The DNR is very good about getting out and grooming a couple times a week. They’re better at getting out grooming than they are about updating their website on trail conditions 🙂
