    I am planning my first snowmobile trip to the Duluth area just after Christmas and I could use some help with ideas on where to ride and stay. I prefer riding in the hills and woods groomed trails, can you help me out Please?

      Dave, Sorry we didn’t get back to you right away- your comment got filtered out and we are still working on some blog bugs. Hopefully we didn’t get to you too late. First off if you like hilly terrain then you have come to the right place. Some of our favorite terrain trails close to Duluth are the CJ Ramstad Northshore state trail- there are some excellent terrain sections between Duluth and Two Harbors. If you venture into Duluth itself we recommend the East Duluth trail system- specifically the trail that takes you onto Hawk Ridge- there are some great photo ops there. The Reservior Riders trail system has some excellent trails as well. Farther north the Yukon trail is one of our favorites. If you get up toward Silver Bay there are trails that will bring you through several extreme elevation changes and a number of great scenic views. The further north you go the better the trails get and nearly all of the trails running off of the North Shore trail are worth checking out. As for a place to stay- if you want to be in Duluth and are going to trailer your sleds I suggest stayeng on the outskirts of the city simply because you wont want to be pulling your trailer through the streets of downtown. If riding from your door is more preferable we would suggest heading up to Two Harbors and staying some place like the AmericInn or looking into some of the smaller resorts aound Duluth that have cabins with access right to the trail.
