Leech Lake is a prime destination for your next sled ride. With miles and miles of snowmobiling trails, there is no doubt that you and your group will have the time of your lives.

Snowmobiling trails near Leech Lake Minnesota

Leech Lake offers multiple snowmobile trails where you can explore some of the most beautiful areas in Minnesota. From the Chippewa National Forest to the Paul Bunyan State Trail you’ll find that there are so many trail and so little time.

 

Here are a few of our favorite trails:

 

  • Heartland State Trail: This 49-mile trail was one of the first rail-to-trail projects in the country. This state trail also connects with the Paul Bunyan State Trail.

  • Paul Bunyan State Trail: This trail is 115 miles long, with the exception of a couple short on-road connections through the cities of Baxter and Bemidji. The Paul Bunyan trail extends from Crow Wing State Park to Lake Bemidji State Park. It is the longest state trail in Minnesota and the longest paved rail-trail in the country.

  • Eastern Region Chippewa Forest: With more than 315 miles of trails in the Chippewa National Forest you’ll see scenic lakes, woodland areas, and frozen wetlands.

Don’t forget to book your lodging on your snowmobiling adventure. Our resorts and inns are some of the best in the State and you can always find a great deal.
