Forest County has over 400 miles of state-funded snowmobile trails. These trails are very well maintained and signed by 5 area snowmobile clubs; The 100 Mile Snow Safari, Blackbear Sportsmen’s Club, Lumberjack Memorial Trails (LMT), Three Lakes/Brule Trails, Tombstone/Pickerel Trails. We are the heart of the Nicolet National Forest as well as home to thousands of acres of County, State and Industrial forest lands. With 92% of the land base being forested, the trails take you through endless miles of pristine forests. Please be respectful and responsible on both public and private property so that we may continue to have these trails.
We represent the communities of Alvin, Argonne, Armstrong Creek, Blackwell, Carter, Cavour, Crandon, Hiles, Laona, Mole Lake, Nelma, Newald, Popple River, and Wabeno.
There are two casinos in Forest County. In the south east part of the county, in Carter, there is the Potawatomi Casino and Hotel. In the south west corner, in Mole Lake, there is the Mole Lake Casino and Lodge.

Snow Cover: 10-12 inches
Date of Report: January 19, 2017
At this time trails are rated in GOOD condition. With the warmer temps and rain forecasted, expect the trails to deteriorate into the weekend. Night time and early morning riding will prove to be best. Daytime trails will be slushy, and possibly, muddy in spots. Some clubs will not be grooming during this warm stretch so riders beware. Please check club websites, found at www.forestcountywi.com, for trail information.
Trail conditions will vary throughout the county so please ride safely and responsibly. Use caution when riding on lakes or frozen water as ice conditions can vary greatly.
The clubs that maintain the Forest County Trail System are made up of volunteers who work very hard to provide the best trails possible. Please respect them while on the trail and allow them to do their job. If you come across the groomer, please give them some extra room. It is a lot easier to move a sled off the trail than 40 feet of tractor and drag.
Remember, TRAILS ARE GROOMED DAY AND NIGHT.
Thank you for riding Forest County Trails, Snowmobiling’s best kept secret.
