About Us

Once upon a time…

On Saturday January 7, 1995, a meeting was held at the Lake/Osceola State Bank to discuss the formation of a snowmobile club whose purpose would be to enhance and improve snowmobiling in Lake County. The immediate goal was to extend the Honeymoon Trail into Baldwin and link it with the Pere Marquette Trail east to Reed City. The Club then took over 17 miles of the New Lake Trail from the Newaygo County Parks System, bringing the total number of miles of groomed trails to 54. The Peacock Trail connector added another 22 miles, increasing the club’s total of miles to 76.

At the beginning of the 1997-98 season, the club took over the Newaygo/White Cloud Trail. This brought the total miles of groomed trails in the two counties to over 100! In the 1999-2000 season the Club took over the trail from Baldwin to Reed City increasing the total of groomed trails to 136 miles in three counties.

Taking care of the trails isn’t all about grooming. Having joined the Adopt-A-Forest Program, Club members participate in spring clean up to remove trash from the trails. In the summer and fall we work to improve the quality of our trail system by updating signs, maintaining bridges, and widening narrow trails. We also have to keep our fleet of groomers and drags in operating condition. Currently the Club has three groomers, to cover all 144 miles of trails. The club is also involved in snowmobile safety, special events, and fundraisers.

It is the mission of club members who volunteer their time to bring you the best trails possible.
