SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN THE UPPER PENINSULA
A list of most of the snowmobile trails in the U.P. Inquire locally for detailed information, map and trail permit.
The State of Michigan requires that anyone who operates a
snowmobile in this state shall purchase a Michigan snowmobile trail
permit sticker. The permit is valid for one year. Revenue from these
