Hello Club Members!!

On Saturday, August 20, 2022 (rain or shine) we will have our 2nd Minocqua Forest Riders picnic!  There were so many positive comments about how nice it was last year to just hang out for a few hours during the off-season so we are going to do it again!

The picnic is a low-key get together for members & their families and is not open to the general public.  We will be at the Minocqua Sports Complex on State Highway 70W from 3:30p – 5:30p.  Sandwiches, chips & dessert will be provided but you’ll need to bring your own beverage. The food will arrive around 4:00p.

The sports complex is an outdoor venue with a covered pavilion that has picnic tables and public restrooms.  On site are: a children’s park, two sand volleyball courts, corn hole, washer toss and ladder toss games.  There is ample parking, and if you prefer not use the picnic tables, feel free to bring lawn chairs.

Hope to see everyone there!!

161 Miles of Groomed Trails

Help Support Our Trails

The Minocqua Forest Riders maintain over 166 miles of snowmobile trails in the area. We have members throughout Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as from many other areas all over Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan. These  Legendary Northwood Trails are groomed several times a week with a priority for weekend traffic.  Our trail system connects Minocqua to Price County (Pike Lake Area) on the west, north to Lac Du Flambeau (Lake of The Torches Casino and Resort), East to Minocqua, Woodruff, and Lake Tomahawk, and south to the Willow Flowage Area!!!

Weekly Equipment Maintenance Work Days

Weekly nights for the remainder of the 2022 season will be changed to Wednesday's at 10:00a.  Please check the website calendar for updates/changes.

In support of our motto, “GROOMING FOR YOU IS WHAT WE DO”, the Minocqua Forest Riders remain committed to manage and maintain our scenic trails. To this end, there is a variety of equipment necessary to accomplish this annual responsibility. Current club equipment values $800,000. Maintaining this investment is important to ensure annual trail preparation and continued maintenance throughout the season.
