Iron County Snowmobiling
Snowmobile Trails, Snowmobiling Reports & Snowmobile Clubs
Iron County boasts more than 260 miles of extensively groomed and well-marked snowmobile trails, drawing riders from throughout the region and beyond to enjoy scenic journeys that are a trademark of trails here. The wide open trails traverse abandoned railroad beds, weave through varied wooded terrain and cross lakes for excellent sledding. Snowfall totals are between 90 and 120 inches each season. The season opens Dec. 1 and closes March 31. The county trail system includes Amasa, Crystal Falls, Iron River, Sidnaw and Kenton areas. The Iron Range Trail Club (906-265-7152) maintains and grooms about 150 miles of trail while the Chippewa Sno-kats Snowmobile Club (906- 875-3117) grooms and maintains about 100 miles of trail. Snowmobile derbies, festivals and races are sponsored each season by clubs and communities. In February watch the Mid American Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb and in March the Chippewa Sno-Cats Snow Drags.
Iron County serves as a hub for not only local trails, but far beyond. Snowmobilers can tap into the vast network of trails in the Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin for an extended riding adventure. Gas stations, restaurants, lodging and sled rentals available. For trail reports call (906) 265-7152 or (888) 879-4766. For trail maps contact the South Central UP Snowmobile Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Iron County snowmobile trail maps are available at the Iron County Chamber of Commerce office, at most area gas stations, and many local businesses. Trail permits can be purchased at the Chicaugon Lake Inn.
