We groom and maintain two connected trails: The Clearwater and the Suomi Trails. These trails are connected to the Taconite Trail, the Lawron Trail and the Marcell South Trail. There is a trailhead parking area on County Road 233, which accesses both trail systems. To reach the parking area, go 11 1/2 miles north on State Hwy 38 out of Grand Rapids. Take the left at 38 Outpost (Cty Rd 233) and proceed approximately 1/4 to 1/2 mile. The parking lot is on the left.
Our club meetings are held at Camp Hiawatha which is located off Co. Rd. 19 on the north side of Deer Lake. The meetings are on the lower level of the main building and start at 7pm on the first Thursday of each month from October through April. New members are welcome. The next meeting is on April 6,2017. Come join us, we would love to meet you.
The club held snowmobile safety training for youths on Dec. 10. Nine new snowmobilers graduated.
TRAIL UPDATE AS OF 03/11/17:
The trails are in tough shape. The weather recently was warm and the swamps are thawing. The snow that we did have thawed and what was left refroze as ice. Conditions for riding should be considered poor. March is noted for big snowstorms so there may be some riding yet. It better come soon though as the season closes at midnight, March 31.
Have fun, keep right and ride sober.
If you are looking for a nice scenic ride, this is the place! There are plenty of hotels and resorts that accommodate snowmobile parking and some have access to the trail systems right out the door.
