Snowmobiling in northeastern Minnesota’s Iron Trail
Snowmobiling on the Iron Trail
The most scenic and best-groomed snowmobile trails in the Midwest await snowmobilers on Minnesota’s Iron Trail. We offer more than 2,000 miles of excellent, groomed and well-signed snowmobile trails.
Our extensive trail system winds across a variety of terrain and breathtaking northern Minnesota scenery. With over 500 lakes and rivers in our region, these frozen waterways also provide exceptionally scenic northeastern Minnesota riding opportunities.
Combine our pristine forests and abundant wildlife with an average snowfall of over 100 inches, the Iron Trail region is truly a snowmobiler’s paradise. From these trails, you can ride for hours in every direction. Our trails have direct access to lodging, gas, dining, and entertainment.
Because of the extensive amount of tree cover on our trails, we are able to open trails earlier and keep them open longer than most areas in Minnesota.
Many northeastern Minnesota lodging properties also offer snowmobile lodging packages. We offer accommodations for both large and small groups, spacious rooms, suites with fireplaces and jacuzzis, and even chalet cabins complete with full kitchens, fireplaces, laundry facilities, saunas and barbeque grills.
We have direct connections to the state-managed Taconite Trail that stretches 170 miles between Ely and Grand Rapids and direct spur connections to the state-managed Tomahawk Trail that travels 86 miles to Lake Superior’s North Shore. We are also a gateway to the state-managed Arrowhead Trail that travels all the way to International Falls bordering Canada.
NEW Trail Requirements (Winter 2005-2006)

Snowmobile rental is available and they will deliver the sleds to your door and pick them up when you are done.
