About

Chippewa Sno-Kats Trail Club

The Chippewa Sno-Kats Trail Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the sports of snowmobiling and ATV/ORVing. We incorporated in 1996 and hold meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at the VFW in downtown Crystal Falls, Michigan. We maintain and groom the trails throughout the year, providing you with an enjoyable user experience. Snowmobilers: We have over 100 miles of groomed trails. We offer some amazing scenery as well as plenty of wildlife - Get some of what Iron County has to offer! Stay at our local hotels/motels/lodges and eat at any number of bars/restaurants. ATV's/ORV's: Trail conditions are really great here in Iron County!! The 57 mile loop of trails that connects Crystal Falls west to Iron River and Iron River southeast toward Florence, WI. and then back north to Crystal Falls is now part of The State of Michigan ATV/ORV program. The Chippewa Sno-Kats Trail Club Inc. is the trail grant sponsor and is able to have the trail graded and maintained with grant funds through the program. This trail also connects with the Mi-Trale trail that heads west out of Iron River to Watersmeet and beyond to Marenisco. It also connects with other Mi-Trale trails that head in all directions in the western U.P.! Iron County has also opened all county roads to ATV/ORV riding so, places to go and things to see are nearly limitless!! There are waterfalls and back road trails and 2 tracks to explore along the way! Also on this loop are connecting locations to the ATV trails in Florence County, Wisconsin. When riding through Crystal Falls, watch for the detour around the campground.  A snowmobile trail goes through the campground, but ATV's are not allowed. The City of Crystal Falls has provided an approved route along city streets to get around the campground.  Watch for the signs, single file as far to the right as possible and at a maximum speed of 25m.p.h. This is now truly a great place to ride!! A last item to report on: Trail permits for both Wisconsin and Michigan are REQUIRED when crossing State lines. We will keep you advised if that changes. We are members of the South Central UP Snowmobile Council and the Michigan Snowmobile Association and have members that regularly attend their meetings. So, there is no better time to plan a trip to the U.P. and enjoy some excellent riding! For trail information, conditions, and additional information call Joe Chavis (President) at (906) 265-7185. And remember, when you are on the trails, Ride Smart, Ride Safe!!
