Minnesota’s 17,000 miles of snowmobile trails offer a wide variety of environments. In the northern part of the state, the trails wind through snowy woodlands dotted with lakes and streams. The central region of Minnesota is wide-open prairie, while the southeastern bluffs feature limestone cliffs. Minnesota’s trail system runs from the state’s more densely populated areas all the way to its remote, sparsely populated wilderness, providing sledders the opportunity to either get away from it all, or go for a quick ride close to home. There are plenty of small towns along the trails offering food, lodging, equipment rental and other services.
