Border Riders Club 40 Mile Loop Snowmobile Trail


Trail Description

You can access this trail ( ITS-89A) from the clubhouse or from ITS 89 (which rides along the east side of US Rt. 201). ITS 89A, or Border Riders North trail, rides along the west side of US Rt 201. It is a windy trail with great scenery of Burnt Jacket Mountain and the Slide Down valley area. This is a great family loop, about 40 miles round trip, with some winding curves but an easy cruising ride. When the clubhouse is open, you are invited to stop in for a warm up of hot chocolate and a bite to eat before heading back out to ride or to return to your place of lodging for the night. Don't forget your camera as there may be opportunities to see some wildlife.

Please note: there is another trail that leads to the clubhouse from the North West end of Big Wood Lake. Many riders like this access when the in town trails get a little rough. At times, this trail may be closed due to harvesting, unsafe ice, or sled dog races so please, follow the signs or ask before heading across the ice.

Description: This is a 180 mile trip into Canada with a loop on both the Jackman and St. George ends to minimize the amount of backtracking. The trip was done in the spring of 2008 on marked trails and the GPX file is the track of that trip. Don't forget to check to see what ID you need to cross the border. The first clubhouse in Canada is where you can get a great lunch and pay your daily trail fee.
Directions to trailhead: You can start at several places along the Jackman loop, ie, in town, at the Border Riders clubhouse, and at several access roads.
