Snowmobiling at Lake of the Woods
Have you made your winter plans yet? Did you know Lake of the Woods has over 300 miles of beautifully groomed trails for riders? There are many land trails that trace around the county, as well as some groomed trails at Zippel Bay State Park. The land trails are kept up by the local Drifters Club, a great resource is their website at http://www.lowdrifters.org/index.html.
The Lake, once frozen, will be staked and groomed every couple days by a group of local resorters that keep up the trails. These trails run from the Rainy River, to the NW Angle, across to Warroad, and back across the South Shore towards the Rainy River. There is a warming house on Garden Island for those that like to stop and enjoy some scenery. The trail also runs right by the Igloo Bar outside Zippel Bay. It is a great way to also get along the Rainy River or other areas of the lake to hit the secret fishing hole.
There is always much to see when you ride Lake of the Woods. Whether you prefer open lakes, wooded pathways, or side roads there is a trail for you here! To learn more, check out our SNOWMOBILING page now!
