Grand Portage Snowmobile Trails

Jan 03, 2007 Full moon rising at the Pigeon River Overlook/Helispot off of Rengo Road.

April 02, 2006 Grand Portage Trail; 1-3 feet of snow in woods, trails groomed, a few bare spots. Drift and banks are wet powder.

April 02, 2006 Grand Portage Trail; great scenery

March 24th, 2006 Grand Portage Trail; about a foot of snow on roof of shelter.

PARKING SUGGESTION: The best place to park is at the trailhead at Mineral Center / Trail Center [ black dot on map ] or at the Lodge / Casino. Take Hwy 61 through Grand Marais 30 miles to County Road 17 to trailhead, or 31 miles from Grand Marais to Lodge / Casino. The trail leading to / out from the Lodge / Casino is a south facing slope close to Lake Superior, prone to late season melt. Stay away from the Old Hwy 61 section of County Road 17... this is so rough and full of frost heaves. You will see a County Road 17 sign about 7 miles before the actual turn onto the County Road 17 we recommend, this is Old Hwy 61.
