Come Snowmobile Lake of the Woods
Snowmobiling is one of the most popular winter activities in the world, giving outdoor enthusiasts a good excuse to head out into the cold conditions to have some fun on the trail. But not all winter destinations are created equal in terms of offering excellent opportunities to experience the sport in all of its glory.
Lake of the Woods has consistent snow, cold weather holding snow longer, beautiful scenery, strong snowmobile clubs that maintain great trails, the diversity of the vast woods, the lake, Igloo Bar, nice variety of resorts, NW Angle, breathtaking scenery and other great attractions in the area, perhaps it should be.
In addition, Lake of the Woods offers trails that are continuously groomed by experienced groomers across the land and through forests and even across the big expanse of the water of Lake of the Woods.
A great way to plan your snowmobiling trip is to start on the south shore of the lake and sled your way to Oak or Flag Islands and have a great day of food and fun and fish and then head back across the lake to enjoy a great evening at your favorite resort.
There are two snowmobile clubs who take care of the grooming responsibilities. The Lake of the Woods Drifters proudly supports the maintenance and grooming of over 400 miles of land and lake trails in LOW and Koochiching counties along with the 90 the John Beckel Northern Connection Trail to Big Falls; the longest uninterrupted wilderness trail in Minnesota.
