Snowmobiling

As the largest county in Wisconsin, Marathon County boasts 880 miles of snowmobile trails and 29 snowmobile clubs who take great pride in grooming these gorgeous scenic trails.  Marathon County trails provide a beautiful variety of scenic wonder as you travel through fields, across lakes, and through forests and woods, all clearly marked with an excellent signage system.  The most current trail maps are available at our Visitor Center and also at many local restaurants, bars, and gas stations along the trails.  Please ride safely and open the rules of the trail.

It stands to reason that the state’s largest county would have the most trails, over 880 miles for snowmobilers to enjoy.  The trails are maintained by 29 snowmobile clubs and a fleet of 47 major pieces of grooming equipment to create one serious sledding destination.  There are miles of great snowmobiling adventures that await you. 

Out-of-state snowmobile licenses are required for non-residents and can be purchased at the Department of Natural Resources and any retailer authorized to sell state recreational licenses.  Visit the Marathon County website:  www.co.marathon.wi.us or call 888-WI-VISIT to request an Official Marathon County Snowmobile Map.  

Many of the snowmobile trails are open to ATV use as long as the temperature is below 29° and snow conditions are favorable.  More ATV trail information is also included in the Marathon County Snowmobile Trail Map.  There are also 11 miles of ATV trails at the Burma County Forest that are open from May through September.
