Snowmobiling & Trail Reports in Cadillac

Adventure seekers will love to explore the greater Cadillac area via snowmobile. Our winter trail adventures are perfect for snowmobile groups that want an exciting sledding experience or for a more leisurely day riding with the family.

Our trail system is well marked and groomed by a dedicated group that loves snowmobiling as much as you do! The Cadillac area has a vast trail system that spreads through the Huron Manistee National Forest with over 200 miles of groomed trails, which connects north, south and west for days of sledding fun.

We have area snowmobile trail reports, maps, rental outlets, information and all of the equipment that you need for your next snowmobile vacation.  See below for links or reach out to us for your snowmobiling vacation package.

Please remember to ride responsibly. We want everyone to stay safe on the trails, don't exceed the speed limits, and to watch out for your fellow snowmobilers. Trail conditions change day to day; make sure to visit our Trail Report for updated news of the winter weather.
