Located in the center of Northern Lower Michigan's Snow Belt, the Gaylord area averages over 180 inches of the white stuff annually. Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.
The newest trail from Gaylord to Indian River is being touted the crown jewel of snowmobile trails in northern Michigan. The trail runs along an abandoned railroad corridor, crosses the Sturgeon River and winds through some of the most spectacular scenery in northern Michigan.
Local businesses put out the welcome mat for snowmobilers. In most cases, snowmobilers can ride from the door of the lodging facility to the trail. Both in-town motels and area resorts welcome snowmobilers and provide trail connectors that allow uninterrupted travel in many directions. Some of the most popular rides are south to Kalkaska along the Blue Bear Trail, west to East Jordan via the scenic Jordan Valley Trail, east to Lewiston along the popular North Branch Trail and as far north as the Mackinac Bridge along the North Central State Trail.
Maps to all the trails and connectors are available from: Gaylord Area Convention and Tourism Bureau's Information Center located at 125 S. Otsego, lodging properties and the many advertisers on the map.
