Marinette County Trail Report Updated February 3, 2016.
With all County clubs reporting 4-5 inches of new snow, trail conditions are greatly improved!
Follow us on Face Book too! “Marinette County Alliance Snowmobile, Atv-Utv Trails”.
Snowmobiles using the public snowmobile trails in Wisconsin are now required to display a “Wisconsin Trail Pass” sticker! This is a new law that went into effect on July 1, 2015 and it’s being enforced! Clubs and organizations have tried to get this information out to sledders but apparently many are still unaware. Tickets are being issued for failure to display a Trail Pass. If you need more information, please visit www.awsc.org or contact a local club. There is also some trail pass information posted on this site near the bottom of the page. Please let us know if you need more information. We hate to see anyone get a ticket and have to pay a $200.50 fine.
ATV-UTV TRAILS ARE OPEN! Yes! You can ride your ATV’s & UTV’s in the winter in certain areas of Marinette County. Clubs & areas that allow ATV’s & UTV’s are: Dun-Good Riders in the northwestern part of the county, Pemenee River Riders in the northeastern part of the county, Near North in the Athelstane area, and the Iron Snow Shoe trails. ****Please be aware that not all snowmobile trails & routes allow atv’s***** so please follow the signs and check with the area clubs to find out where atv’s & utv’s are allowed. Some trails are SNOWMOBILE ONLY and do not allow atv’s at any time of the year. Follow the signs and do not trespass! Most of the atv trails that are open now are located in the northern 1/2 of the county. Marinette County does not have a temperature restriction.
The new “2016 Marinette County Snowmobile-ATV-UTV Trail Map” is now available! Brand new and just off the presses! This is a year ’round map, showing winter snowmobile trails and winter-summer ATV-UTV trails. Area business sponsors and gas stops are clearly noted. It’s a very good source of information to help plan your visit to Marinette County. Please contact a local club to request a map. Follow the links to each club listed on the web site to request maps or for other information about the club & the area they cover.
Change IS Here!
The way we register snowmobiles in Wisconsin changed on July 1, 2015. In addition to your sled registration, you will be required to purchase an annual “Trail Pass” for sleds to operate legally on the Wisconsin trail system. Please visit the AWSC (Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs) web site at www.awsc.org for more information and instructions for purchasing your Trail Pass. Members of a sanctioned AWSC club will qualify to receive the Trail Pass at a discounted rate. Non-members will pay more. You do not have to join a club, if you prefer you may opt to pay the additional amount for non-members. But regardless, you will need a Trail Pass beginning this coming season.
If you don’t currently belong to a club and would like to, please consider joining one of the Marinette County clubs. All of our county clubs are listed on this web site. All of them are set up for the new process and they all welcome new members. Click on the “Club Links” to check out each club and find one that is in your riding area or one that sounds to your liking.
Funds generated will go into the trail system: to provide for trail development, funding for currently un-funded trails, re-location, bridge projects, law enforcement and additional dollars to the clubs for their trail maintenance (funding). It’s been years and years since the program has seen any increase in funding and much has been left behind because the club’s can not pay for it.
Remember: The snowmobile program in Wisconsin is SELF-FUNDED and maintained by generous, giving VOLUNTEERS! Please support the sport you love through club membership. Join one of our area clubs today!___________________________________________________________________________________________

Atv’s & utv’s are not allowed at any time of the year on these club’s trails: Kumalong Sno Riders, River Road Riders, Ranger City Riders and Bagley-Brazeau Joy Riders. Please respect the landowners wishes and do not attempt to ride atv’s where prohibited.
NOTE: When the trails re-open, ATV’s & UTV’s are allowed on the following club’s trails: Dun-Good Riders, Pemenee River Riders, Near North and Iron Snow Shoe.
