Snowmobiling: 450 miles to explore

Snowmobiling: 450 miles to explore

This is snowmobiling like nowhere else in the Midwest. With 450 miles of trails that wind through the wildest, most breathtaking scenery in Minnesota, the hardest part of riding in Lutsen-Tofte, Grand Marais, the Gunflint Trail and Grand Portage is deciding where to head first.

Every part of Cook County offers something special to snowmobilers—from wilderness and solitude to Lake Superior views. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like moose, fox, coyotes and wolves.

Our local club, the Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club, is active all winter long, sponsoring rides, contests and other events throughout the season. 

Snowmobile friendly

Cook County knows how to show snowmobilers a good time with friendly small-town hospitality. Rest, refuel and resupply at family businesses with countless  lodging options, restaurants, fuel and repair services, groceries, and other riding supplies.

This is quite possibly the perfect snowmobile vacation. Find a place to stay or other business information.
