Snowmobile Clubs

Leech Lake Riders Snowmobile Club

The Objective of the Leech Lake Riders is to stimulate and advance the general welfare and safety of snowmobiling, to serve the interest of all snowmobilers through a greatly improved trail system and create good relationships between landowners, DNR, business communities and members of the sport.

Nevis Trailblazers

The Nevis Trailblazers Snowmobile Club was founded in 1967 and has been actively maintaining and grooming area snowmobile trails ever since.

During the early years of the clubs existence, trails were groomed by towing a simple wooden drag behind a Polaris charger snowmobile. Now we have a 2014 turbo charged diesel-powered Tucker Sno Cat pulling a hydraulically operated 21 foot long, 8 foot wide steel drag. Weekly, the Tucker will run approximately 245 miles grooming trails in the Paul Bunyan State Forest, the Wilder Trails, and the east-west alternate portion of the State Heartland Recreational Trail from Park Rapids to Sno-Way #1 (5 miles west of Walker.)

The Nevis Trailblazers is an active club (membership of about 60 people) with many local family and individual members as well as many seasonal members from outside the immediate area. Club activities include organized snowmobile rides during the winter season, an annual Christmas Party in December and two club outing in a neighboring community. Each spring, club members clean the year’s accumulation of trash from the Wilder Trails, and each autumn brush them in preparation for the upcoming snowmobile season. Members also teach a Snowmobile Safety Class through the Nevis School Community Education program.

Longville Lakes Area Snowmobile Club

Hold on to your helmets. The trails are limitless and the area is geared up for the snowmobile enthusiast. The area trails are regularly groomed and await those that take to the scenic back country. Bring the family and the sled. We'll see you on one of the many beautiful trails.

Traveling in comfort and safety over the new-fallen snow on a snowmobile has rapidly become the Northland's favorite winter family activity. Snowmobiling provides a wonderful opportunity for the active family to enjoy a healthy outdoor sport together. Cass County has over 450 miles of interconnected, groomed trails.

Forest Riders Trail Club

The Forest Riders Snowmobile Club was formed in 1974 and started grooming trails in the Two Inlets State Forest.

Over the years, trails have been added and now the trail system connects to Park Rapids, Smokey Hills, White Earth State Forest, Paul Bunyan State Forest, Lake George and all through Itasca State Park. Currently, the club grooms 276 miles of trails. The trails would not be possible if not for private property owners. Please respect all signs and stay on designated trails. In addition to grooming and maintaining the Forest Riders' trail system, we offer youth snowmobile safety classes to educate and provide certification for new riders, hold monthly club meetings, have club rides and outings, and contribute to the community.

Mission ~ To assist the DNR in providing a safe and quality snowmobile experience by maintaining the snowmobile trails within the Park Rapids, Two Inlets, and Itasca Park areas.

Ponto Knight Riders Snowmobile Club

The Ponto Knight Riders Snowmobile Club has about 38 members who maintain about 75 miles of trails in the Backus area. The Ponto Knight Riders Club has been organized since 1974 and is a local club of the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA for short).

Our club is funded by dues, the trail fees you pay and a small fraction of gas taxes you pay as a snowmobiler. We also maintain excellent relationships with the State DNR and Cass County Land Department which supports our club with land for trails and other significant trail support. Our trails also cross several private properties and we are indebted to these local citizens for their generosity.

SnoBarons Snowmobile Club (HayDays)

This year the Sno-Barons celebrate 46 years as a club. To make it successfully that long, a club needs a common purpose. For the Sno Barons, that purpose is unquestionably the HAYDAYS GRASS DRAGS. This event has grown year by year and is now recognized, as the largest event of its kind in North America. It has been referred to in many publications as the Grand Daddy of them All. The Sno Barons needless to say, are extremely proud of this achievement.


For over 35 years, Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association(MnUSA) members and volunteers have worked to preserve and protect snowmobiling in Minnesota and across the United States through legislative initiatives, trail development and involvement in land access for trails.
