Equipment Maintenance Work Nights/Days
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.
The snowmobile season is fast approaching. In preparation, the Tuesday
night/Wednesday work sessions, at the groomer shed, are again scheduled. The work sessions focus on preparing the equipment for the start of the season as well as providing necessary weekly maintenance throughout the season. Club members are invited to participate.

130 Miles of Groomed Trails
The Minocqua Forest Riders maintain over 130 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 Group Snowmobile Rides
Weather permitting and we all do a snow dance.....our club holds a weekly ride every Wednesday or Thursday beginning the first week in January. We typically meet up around 9:00a, stop for lunch and maybe one other location, and then head back by night fall. We will post and email information about the starting point, stops along the way to pick up other riders, and of course the restaurant destinations!
A big thank you always goes out to Larry and Nancy Schum for volunteering to coordinate and lead us! Their knowledge of the Northwoods' trail system and destination stops has been a great asset to the success of these rides!! Since 2015 this weekly activity has become quite special! It's a great way to meet other snowmobilers and to not have to ride alone!!
This year we are going to try something different. If there are a large number of sleds, our Club President Curt Christensen will lead a group that prefers a more scenic ride while Larry and Nancy will take the rest of the riders.
Thank you everyone for joining and making this an enjoyable experience to look forward to each season!! The rides are always open to the public!
