Northern Wisconsin Snowmobiling
The State of Wisconsin has an extensive snowmobile trail system that links every corner of the state. Some of the best trails are in Northern Marinette County . Enticing snowmobile adventures abound. Four state snowmobile corridors span the area providing unlimited choices to access bordering counties and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Some multi-use trails are open to snowmobiles and ATV's.
The Iron Snowshoe Trails, northeast of Crivitz, invite snowmobilers to explore the area surrounding the picturesque Caldron Falls Flowage and High Falls Reservoir of the Peshtigo River. Along this scenic trek are numerous friendly pit stops and plenty of picture taking opportunities. Mountain joins with several local trails to lead riders on a fun loop through Suring, Gillette, Oconto Falls and Lena. Snowmobilers can ride for miles without having to travel the same trail twice with all the options available. Trail side resorts and restaurants are plentiful and ready to greet tired and hungry travelers.
State Corridor 7 travels north from these trails toward Dunbar where it connects with Corridor 3 traveling east to the Pembine area, then completing a loop south back towards the Crivitz area.
In the beautiful Nicolet National Forest, west of the Iron Snowshoe Trails, Lakewood, Townsend, and Mountain invite snowriders to journey through the snow trimmed trees on the Nicolet Trails. This 250 mile marathon trail travels the forest areas of northern Oconto, western Marinette, and eastern Langlade Counties providing excellent places to stop and warm up, and share adventures with other riders.
Cross-country skiers will enjoy the designated trails off County Road W, west of Crivitz with over 30 km of award winning, groomed cross-country ski trails.
The Northern Wisconsin ATV trail system offers hundreds of miles of riding. There is a new 7 mile trail from McClintock Park, and the Homestead Trail near Pembine offers about 200 miles of great riding with trails that take you into Florence County for additional fun.
