Located 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!

Wow, what a great winter! The weather forecast looks awesome as well. Snow predicted 3 of the next 7 days with much less wind. We have a great snow base and there have been many out riding. We are grooming the majority of the trail system twice this week to work on widening, to cut moguls, and to continue to pack the base. Get out your sleds! Plenty of winter remains! See schedule on page 3.
Trails are awesome! We have great snow! We’re hoping today’s wind doesn’t blow too much snow around. Get out and enjoy the trails.
There have been some adjustments in the schedule for Thursday and Friday grooming runs.
Monday service day complete, and grooming runs set for the week. We will be double grooming some of the trails this week. Great snow out there! See schedule. Thanks.
