Gunflint Trail Snowmobile Trail System AKA "G Trail" 125 miles [maps]
Forested snowmobile trails travel north of downtown Grand Marais with connections to the North Shore State Snowmobile Trail, the Expressway Trail, Grand Portage Snowmobile Trail System, Upper Gunflint Snowmobile Trail System and the Ontario Snowmobile Trail System out of Gunflint Lake. Snowmobiling on the North Shore you may see moose, deer, wolves, pine martens, lynx and fox. Snowmobiling is not allowed in the BWCAW (which is patrolled by dog teams and from the air.) You'll be riding in secluded areas, services are available at some lodges on the trail, with a concentration around Poplar Lake, the midway point on the Gunflint Snowmobile Trail system. But be prepared, sled with others and bring an extra belt. Other items worth bringing with are: food, water, cell phone (limited service), fuel and oil. Leave your itinerary with a friend or family member and get a local weather forecast.

Snowmobile Trails

Trail Ethics and Common Sense [maps]
Most of the trails in the Minnesota Arrowhead/Northeastern Minnesota are wilderness trails, or adjacent to wilderness areas. Trails cross private and public land and are developed and maintained through a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR) Grant-In-Aid 'GIA' program. Local snowmobile groups act in conjunction with the state to create, groom and maintain area trails. If you intend to use a state trail or GIA trail you must possess a state trail sticker. Otherwise snowmobiling is free of charge in Minnesota as long as your snowmobile is registered here, or in your home state or province. A 50 MPH speed limit is in effect unless otherwise posted. Watch out for dog sledding teams, moose, deer and approaching snowmobiles. Stay off ski trails - Lodges and resorts spend large amounts of money grooming their ski trails, and when sledders destroy the skinny skiing trails, it gives all of us a bad rap!

Be prepared; ALWAYS RIDE WITH OTHERS, have a current map, and bring repair items. Other items you better bring with are: emergency food, water, flash light, cell phone (special note; there is not cell phone service on the Gunflint Trail or most of the area surrounding the Gunflint Trail - don't rely on your cell phone to get you out of a jam!), belt, fuel and oil. Leave your itinerary with a friend or family member and get a local weather forecast. See emergency contacts on our area contacts page.
