We groom and maintain two connected trails: The Clearwater and the Suomi Trails. These trails are connected to the Taconite Trail, the Lawron Trail and the Marcell South Trail. There is a trailhead parking area on County Road 233, which accesses both trail systems. To reach the parking area, go 11 1/2 miles north on State Hwy 38 out of Grand Rapids. Take the left at 38 Outpost (Cty Rd 233) and proceed approximately 1/4 to 1/2 mile. The parking lot is on the left.
Our club meetings are held at Camp Hiawatha which is located off Co. Rd. 19 on the north side of Deer Lake. The meetings are on the lower level of the main building and start at 7pm on the first Thursday of each month from October through April. New members are welcome. The next meeting is on February 4,2016. Come join us, we would love to meet you.
TRAIL UPDATE AS OF 02/02/16:
The trails are open and are being groomed. We have had about 8" of snow an inch at a time over the last two weeks. The weekend before last we had temps in the -20's and that froze down the swamps. This past weekend we had temps in the 30's with bright sunshine on Saturday and cloudy on Sunday. The loose snow on the trails melted and then refroze so the trails will be quite firm without much loose snow. Unfortunately, the big snowstorm for today did not hit us as we could use more snow.
Have fun, keep right and ride sober.
If you are looking for a nice scenic ride, this is the place! There are plenty of hotels and resorts that accommodate snowmobile parking and some have access to the trail systems right out the door.
