Riding Info

You must have a current State of Michigan Trail Pass on your sled, and a current drivers license.  All riders MUST wear a snowmobile helmet - it's the law.Please make sure your gas tank is full and that your oil is topped off BEFORE arrving at the meeting point.  Please make sure to wear appropriate clothing  - warm, wind proof pants & jacket,  gloves or mittens, warm boots.

There will be no charge to ride, but we ask that you register so we have an idea of how many participants we will have.
