Just because it's public land

Submitted by indianas on Thu, 10/18/2018 - 18:18

Just because it's public land doesn't mean it's open to snowmobiling or that off-trail riding is permitted.

Common public land closures include:

  • All Congressionally-designated Wilderness is closed to snowmobiling, punishable by a $5,000 fine and up to six months in jail.
  • Wildlife Winter Range is closed to snowmobiling except on a designated trail.
  • Non-motorized zones are closed to snowmobiling.

Ask first and know before you go, otherwise presume STAY ON TRAIL is the rule across all public lands!

Trespassing is the number one complaint against snomobilers by landowers and a leading cause of lost snowmobiling access. Most land adjacent to snomobile trails is closed to snomobiling so stay on the trail!

No Trespassing means No Snomobiling and just because there are snowmobile tracks off-trail doesn't mean it's open or legal.
