Back in 1975, in response to a request by the
Brainerd City Council concerning safe snowmobiling, a few
avid snowmobilers organized and incorporated the BRAINERD
SNODEOS SNOWMOBILE CLUB.
With chainsaws, axes, shovels and sweat the
Club laid out a trail from Brainerd to Riverton and from
Brainerd to Crow Wing State Park .
In 1976 the Club purchased our first groomer –
a twin tracked Ski Doo Alpine, pulling a 4 foot wide
The 125 member strong Brainerd Snodeos
now maintain and groom 107 miles of trail from Brainerd to
Riverton, to Crow Wing State Park, to Harding and towards
Garrison. The present groomers, two Tucker Sno-Cat
2000s with 8 foot wide fully hydraulic drags, can smooth the
roughest trails in a single pass. The overall length
of these rigs is about 45 feet and the cost in excess of $185,000 each.
Building and maintaining trails is a
year-round commitment for the club members who volunteer
their time to cut trees, clear brush, pick rock, build
bridges, install culverts and put up signs to prepare for
the snowmobile season ahead.
The members of the Brainerd Snowmobile Club and our
groomer operators that groom our and your trail would like
to remind all users that many hours of volunteered time are
given each year to make the trail system we have safe and
enjoyable for all.
WE NEED YOUR COOPERATION TO KEEP THE TRAILS SAFE AND
*Always keep to the right
*Avoid spinning your track
*Don’t “Power” through corners
*Please Slow Down
Your cooperation will keep the trails smooth for those who
follow and for your return trip.
