Groomer Report

UPDATE: March 13
If you do ride then ride with caution as sections of the trails have running water across them now.
East End:
****CLOSED  between the Maxton Trail (493) between Glen Cove and the Maxton Plains area. Other areas on this end are Very poor at best
West End: 
 This end is in fair condition except the half mile along Canoe bay shore is rocky. The temps are supposed to go above freezing this weekend and it won't take much to make this end Very Poor as well.
There is currently a logging operation on the trail 493 (the plains area) for 7 miles. This logging will continue all winter. Ride with caution if you go out there!

Note from satisfied snowmobiler:


Hello Drummond Island,
Just wanted to take a minute to voice my opinion.
I've been a snowmobiler here in Michigan for over 30 years.
I average over 2000 miles per year on the Michigan trail system from Copper Harbor to
Sault Ste. Marie. I was a little confused when reading your current trail conditions.
I spent 7 days on the island from 12/25/2013 to 1/1/2014. We rode a total of 425 miles
with 5 days spent on the trails. In my opinion the trails were great! There are NO water holes.
No where! There might be a 6" small puddle, but there are NO water holes. We rode every single
trail on the island and most more than 5 times. Everything was fantastic. The one trail some might want to avoid is the 496 trail. This section was un groomed with significant deep powder. We loved it. Not a mark on the trail until we passed on 12/26. Now that we broke ground it's most likely easier to ride. I really don't think you are giving yourselves the credit that's due. No traffic, smooth groomed trails, beautiful scenery & great people on the island. Tons of deer, partridge, wood peckers, (2) wolves & a rabbit made for great viewing!
We will be back soon, it's been 7 years since our last visit, which was way to long to stay away. Thank you for a great holiday week!
Best Regards,
Ada, Michigan
