More than 200 miles of the country’s finest and most diverse snowmobiling trails are in the enchanted Boardman and Jordan River valleys.
The Boardman Valley Trail is an 80-mile network of scenic routes that wanders through thick green cedars and pines beside the snow-cradled river, skirts the edges of icebound lakes among wooded hills, and glides through stands of oak where deer run silently beside the pathway. Hotels with access to this trail include Econo Lodge, Kingsley Motel, Ranch Rudolph and Shoe String Resort.
The Jordan Valley Trail, about a half-hour to the northeast, features over 130 miles of spectacular trails not far from Shanty Creek and the picturesque village of Bellaire. Hotels with access to this trail include Interlochen Motel and Ellis Lake Resort.
Since the region’s scenery is so diverse, the trails encompass many different landscapes: snug tunnels of tall snowy evergreens, open stands of hardwood where the sun shines down through blue shadows, high ridges where eagles soar, wide meadows that look out over distant glacial lakes. Best of all, they’re just a few minutes from Traverse City, whose restaurants, galleries, casinos and resorts provide a welcome dose of luxury at the end of a day’s riding.
