Funded by the DNR (through the Grants-in-Aid program, local businesses & by local snowmobile clubs), Roseau county has a variety of snowmobile trails ranging over 300 miles of marked & groomed trails as well as open country trails connecting to other towns & State Forests within our county as well as trails connecting to Kittson & Lake of the Woods County.
Non-motorized Recreational Trails-The City of Roseau maintains a network of approximately 3 miles of paved recreational trails for pedestrians, bicycles and other non-motorized recreational use. The current trail system provides a basic loop around the city when combined with existing sidewalks and low volume streets. The trail system is continually being expanded and improved to provide more dedicated recreational trails.
Additional linkages and expansions are planned in the future including a south Roseau River crossing between the Roseau City Park and the Roseau Oak Crest Golf Club. The City is also planning an additional 4.5 miles of paved trail to be constructed in conjunction with the Roseau East Diversion project. This trail expansion would include extensive trails into the rural areas surrounding the City. Trail heads, parking and scenic overlooks are proposed as part of this trail expansion.
Motorized trails-The City of Roseau maintains designated routes for use of ATV’s, snowmobiles and other off-road vehicles. ATV’s are legal to drive on all County and township roads in Roseau County.
The City of Roseau is also working with the Corps of Engineers and local ATV/snowmobile clubs to include dedicated ATV/snowmobile trails and challenge areas in the proposed 4.5 mile East Diversion Project.
