We invite you to come and explore the great snowmobiing that the Cass Lake area of Minnesota has to offer!
Under a blanket of snow, the Chippewa National Forest becomes a land of unexplored snowmobiling adventures. Over 315 miles of motorized snowmobile trails, in the Cass Lake Minnesota area, provide access for snowmobilers to 1,300 lakes, scenic woodlands, and frozen wetlands.
The snowmobile trails connect to nearly 200 miles of routes beyond the Forest. The Soo Line trail, an old railroad grade extending from Cass Lake to Moose Lake, is the longest motorized recreation trail in Minnesota.
Snowmobilers may also travel on unplowed National Forest roads unless posted closed to snowmobile use. Cross-country travel off of Forest roads is prohibited. Snowmobiles must be operated in compliance with State and Federal laws and regulations.
A Chippewa National Forest snowmobiling map is helpful to identify designated Forest roads and trails. Maps for specific snowmobile trails are available from county offices, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and National Forest offices.
