I'd REALLY like to check out the North Shore riding. Have heard good things (most years).

I will definitley be around the site come snow season, and will watch for some MN ride developments, wherever it may take place.

its all so good riding it impossilbe to choose. i do think the iron range, lake of the woods, and north shore are the best places to go, the thing is you can really go all three places in a few days easy. i once went from park rapids to international fall and back in one day in all ditches so you really can cover a lot of ground in a day. should be able to do 250 a day pretty easy. ill start looking into places to stay. i know of some places in ely, silber bay, two harbor, and virginia that are pretty good.

I grew up in Grand Marais, MN (north-eastern end of the North Shore system). Lots of trails and even more unplowed forest service and logging roads. No snow worth mentioning last year but I have high hopes (as always :) for this next winter. The trails around Grand Portage are always good (assuming enough snow) - the casino does a nice job keeping up the trails up there.

Here are a couple of links with maps:
Grand Marais: http://www.boreal.org/RidgeRiders/
Grand Portage: http://www.grandportage.com/snowmobile/sno...ilemap06-07.pdf

Maps and a compass/gps are a really good idea. There is a lot of nothing back there. No cell phone coverage over a lot of it and the gas stations are few and far between.

Yes I also recomend Grand Marais. We were riding up there a month before there was any snow in Two Harbors. Great trail system - always make sure to stop at the Hungry Jack for a burger and beer. Lots of sleds on the weekends though but it's getting that way everywhere up north.

Lots of good trails and routes in the Finland / Isabella area too - lots of fun.

When Im all done with my racing equip. and have some extra gas and hotel money I might have to get a couple guys together from up here and make a trip down would be nice to meet you all, and have a good time out on the trails.
