Snowmobile Trail Conditions and Locations

Depending on snow conditions, trails open in December, and the season can last through the end of March. Trail riding experiences vary from open farmland in the south to heavily forested land in the north. For example, a favorite destination for Red Arrow riders is Argonne and a stop at Main Street Ed’s. The Nicolet State Recreational Trail starts in Gillett and runs 90 miles north to connect to numerous trail systems.

Here is where you can find trailheads, where your adventure begins!

  • Near Hwy. 32/64 intersection
  • Just east of Chute Pond
  • In Gillett at Zippel Park
  • In Suring, near the Village Hall
  • In Lakewood, on Hwy. 32

Oconto County is less than a full tank of gas round trip from the Fox Cities/Green Bay area and less than a three-hour drive from the Milwaukee area, which makes it easy to plan a day trip to explore on sled in Oconto County.
