SUDBURY, ONTARIO
North of Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay and 150 miles east of Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario’s Sudbury region offers a network of outstanding trails. Three trail loops originate in Sudbury – the Rainbow Elk Loop (325 km / 200 mi) to the southwest, the Cartier Moose Loop (225 km / 140 mi) to the northwest and the Chiniguchi Wolf Loop (210 km / 130 mi) to the north. These well-groomed and marked routes offer enough mileage to give visitors three days of great riding while exploring the region.

BEAR LODGE MOUNTAINS, WYOMING
More snowmobilers drive past the Bear Lodge Mountains traveling between the Black Hills and the Big Horn Mountains than ever stop to ride there, but they’re bypassing a treasure. This small mountain range with elevations ranging over 5000 feet is just north of I-80 and the town of Sundance, with an easily accessible trailhead nearby. Several modest peaks are scattered among a mix of open and forested terrain that includes ridges and valleys. There are 56 miles of groomed trails and 22 miles of un-groomed routes, so it’s easy to spend a day enjoying various loops with plenty of opportunities to explore off-trail.
Highlights: Distant view of Devil’s Tower National Monument

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, WISCONSIN
This region – easily accessible via Interstate 94 just north of Eau Claire, Wisconsin – is a beautiful combination of rolling forest and agricultural land, overlayed with an extensive trail network. The Chippewa River bisects the county and the riding is great on both sides of the waterway. The great river is paralleled by the Old Abe Trail on its eastern side, a multi-use recreational route connecting the towns of Cornell, Jim Falls and Chippewa Falls. Interestingly, most of the snowmobile trails are not only numbered, but named as well – with colorful monikers like Rough Rider, Leaker, Crosscut, Rainbow, Buckhorn, Sunnyside and Budweiser!
Trail Towns: Cornell, Jim Falls, Bloomer, Cadott, New Auburn, Stanley, Boyd

TRI-COUNTY REGION, ILLINOIS
Located south, west and northwest of Rockford, Illinois, the Tri-County Alliance is comprised of twelve clubs. Their trail territory covers Winnebago, Ogle and eastern Stephenson Counties, with additional mileage in Lee County to the south. In all, there are several hundred miles of funded and marked routes over a variety of gently rolling terrain. Most of the land is agricultural, but the region is interspersed with some sizable woodlots, picturesque valleys and small streams. Clubs in the alliance operate several groomers, allowing them to maintain smooth trails whenever snow conditions are suitable.
Trail Towns: Winnebago, German Valley, Leaf River, Byron, Mount Morris, Oregon
Highlights: Rock River bridge crossings
