Snowmobiling & Snowmobile Trails

The Cable Area in Northern Wisconsin has over 1,200 miles of interconnecting snowmobile trail systems, making it one of the largest trail systems in the U.S.  Uncrowded trails and the solitude of the Chequamegon National Forest bring snowmobiliers back again and again to the Cable Area. Our trails give any snowmobiler an exhilarating outdoor experience. The interconnecting trail systems allow riders to travel from location to location on the lake and trails without having to trailer their machines. The Cable area system connects with the surrounding county trails and the Tri-County Corridor trail running from Minnesota to Michigan.

Trail maps are available at many local businesses and at the Cable Area Chamber. Maps and routes change on a yearly basis, be sure you have the most accurate information. Law enforcement is enforced!

Bayfield County Snowmobile Alliance and local snowmobile clubs keep the trails impeccably groomed using 13 hardworking machines and many man hours. While you're riding our trails, please yield to the machines as they have the right of way. Stop at area businesses to make a donation to the local clubs!

Wednesday, March 11th- Trails Closed
Warm temperatures arrived on Monday after the busy weekend of riding. With the combination of lack of snow and warm temperatures Bayfield Count will be closing their trails early to protect the property of private land owners. Gates will be closed as of this afternoon, Wednesday, March 11th. Even if a snow storm were to occur at this time the trails will not re-open. It was a short but sweet season this year, we appreciate all of your business this winter season!
