Our trails are currently closed.  With the cold weather that we are having and the snow in the forecast, we are hoping to be able to open soon.  This all depends on our swamps freezing and the lakes freezing.  Our volunteers are out working every day to clear brush and sign the trails.  Stay tuned for updates.

Snowmobile Information:

The Three Lakes – Brule River trails are the destination that is sure to satisfy the most discerning snowmobiler.  Our trail system encompasses 186 miles of state and locally funded trails.

The trail system traverses the most scenic country that Wisconsin has to offer.  The Kimball Creek trail (both upper and lower) will take you through the pristine Nicolet National Forest and provides you with connection to Vilas, Forest, and Oneida Counties.  Our southern trails will lead you to Rhinelander, Monico, Pelican Lake, and Crandon areas.  Trails to the west and north will take you to Sugar Camp, St. Germain, and Eagle River.

Everyday is sure to bring you a new and different snowmobiling experience.  Don’t forget to visit Downtown Three Lakes via our trail system and take advantage of the great amenities it has to offer.  Once there, you’ll experience the old fashioned charm of the Wisconsin Northwoods.  Our main street is lit by antique lampposts, and lined with very unique gift shops, restaurants, taverns, and other small businesses, including a winery.

The community’s greatest natural resource is the largest chain of freshwater lakes in the world, 28 interconnected lakes stretching northward to Eagle River, Wisconsin.  Stay on the marked trails and you will be rewarded with the scenic beauty of the Three Lakes Chain.

Then, venture to the northeast and discover the remote beauty of the Brule River trails.  Be sure to stop and sample the warmth and hospitality to be found at the local taverns and eating establishments.
