Something to think about…..
Most snowmobilers don’t think about where snowmobile trails come from. Trails are not legislated or a God-given right. Mostly, snowmobile trails exist because someone has said “Yes”.
Frequently, that someone is a private landowner whose property is situated where a snowmobile club wants to route a trail. Clubs must obtain permission from the landowner to cross their property. Normally, for a designated narrow strip of land, to be used only in the winter by snowmobiles with valid Snowmobile Trail Permits.
If enough landowners say ‘no’, either to a new trail or the renewal of an existing one, it would threaten the existence of the system we enjoy today. Think about it: snowmobiling in some areas could return to the dark ages where there were no linkages to other networks and regions, only the ability to ride around in local loops.
Don’t forget, you need a trail pass to ride legally in Wisconsin. Contact us regarding how you can get a discounted trail pass!
