One reason Alger County is one of the country’s premium snowmobiling areas is the amount of snowfall it receives. A 13 year average shows the area will receive 232.9 inches of white stuff each year. Due to lake effect conditions, snow generally accumulates earlier and stays on the ground longer than most other areas.

There are now over 300 miles of well-groomed trails that allow riders to travel through some of the most pristine and beautiful areas nature has to offer anywhere in the world.

There are 10 trails which are groomed seven days a week, depending on the prevailing conditions. On these trails, a rider can travel to all parts of the county, visiting lakes, streams, waterfalls, forest and any number of other scenic sites.

Our snowmobile trail system reaches from Shingleton to Grand Marais, Seney, Marquette, Chatham, Manistique, and Rapid River.

The local trails also connect with trails from the surrounding counties, which allows riders the option of choosing trips of various lengths.

All of this thanks to the coordinated efforts of federal, state and local entities. These groups realized long ago the importance of snowmobiling and have worked together to combine the areas enormous natural resources with these many miles of beautiful trails waiting for you to enjoy.
