DAY TRIP

Ideas

As Edgar Hetteen said: “Snowmobiling can almost be a religious experience”.

  • RIDE TO WARROAD...

    then cross Lake of the Woods to the Northwest Angle for lunch, end your day with a stop at Lake of the Woods Brewing Company, the Northernmost Brewery in the Continental US before returning back to Roseau.

  • RIDE TO LOST RIVER STATE FOREST...

    where you can ride the “EDA 1” trail named after the founders of snowmobiling: Edgar Hetteen, David Johnson, and Allan Hetteen. This trail is where they used the first snowmobiles in 1956 and 1957.

  • HIT THE 120+ MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS...

    in nearby Beltrami Island State Forest. During the winter months, no other trails are groomed except Beltrami’s snowmobile trails.

  • IMPROMPTU TRAIL DAY

    Pick a spot on our snowmobile trail map (don’t have a snowmobile trail map? Call us so we can mail you one) and discover a new trail.

  • BEFORE HEADING HOME...

    take your sled out for one last ride over to the Polaris Experience Center and see first hand the history behind it all.

ATV TRAILS

Find nearly 1,000 acres of greenway along the Roseau River Flood Diversion project. This area provides a natural area for plants and wildlife as well as recreation. One feature of the greenway is a 4.5 mile paved non-motorized recreational trail running the full length of the Diversion, starting at the Roseau City Park. Additionally, there are designated ATV trails and an ATV terrain park incorporated into the greenway space. Another feature constructed by a local bike club is nearly 13 miles of single track mountain bike trails in and around large spoils piles from the diversion construction, dubbed Mt. Roseau.
