stateLocated midway between the Twin Cities and Fargo-Moorhead, the Douglas Area Trails Association maintains 368 miles of snowmobile trails in west central Minnesota’s Hardwood Hills and River Prairie landscapes.  With the abundance of lakes throughout Douglas County, the DATA Trails offer a combination of open flatland to heavily wooded, hilly riding opportunities. Snowmobilers often comment about the spectacular views and abundant wildlife they encounter while riding.  Every community in Douglas County is connected by trail, so you are never far from food, gas, services, or accommodations.  36 miles of our system is the blacktopped, multi-use Central Lakes Trail which connects us to Fergus Falls to the north or the St. Cloud Area to the south. The Central Lakes Trail provides quick and easy access to trails all across Douglas County.  Come to Douglas County a take a ride!

Trail update

Trails are open.  We will groom and repair what we can this week.  There are fields with low snow, but ditches and wooded parcels are still in good condition for riding.  We’ll do what we can this week to repair and flatten, and hope for more snow soon!  See grooming schedule on trails and map page.

Trail report

Trails are open.  This week we will repair what we can with the snow we have.  We are in need of a decent snowfall again.  See grooming schedule tomorrow.
