Snowmobile Trails

The County Land Department cooperates with eleven local snowmobile clubs, the County Land Department, the United States Forest Service, the Department of Natural Resources, corporate landowners, and other public and private property owners regarding the management and maintenance of the snowmobile trail system within Itasca County.

The local snowmobile clubs acquire trail permits, work with private property owners, coordinate trail construction, conduct regular maintenance of the trails, place or replace trail signage, and groom the snowmobile trails every year. These clubs, made up of local citizens, volunteer their time and talents to maintain a high quality system of snowmobile trails. Their dedication and work is greatly appreciated as residents and visitors to Itasca County enjoy snowmobile riding on these trails.

There are eighteen snowmobile trails located on 600+ miles of scenic lands. Most of the snowmobile trails are groomed and maintained by local snowmobile clubs and the Department of Natural Resources through the Grant-In-Aid Trail Assistance Program.; Itasca County serves as the trail sponsor for the Grant-In-Aid Trails, operating as the financial agent for Grant-In-Aid reimbursements and providing technical assistance to the clubs.
