Our area is called the Tri-Forest Snowmobile Trail System. We have four Snowmobile Parks with warming huts, restrooms, loading ramps and parking areas in the Klamath, Modoc and Shasta-Trinity National Forests located in Siskiyou County in N. California. The Snowmobile Parks are linked by over 260 miles of groomed snowmobile trails maintained by two groomers and several hundred un-groomed but marked and maintained snowmobile trails. These trails offer excellent snow conditions and spectacular views and are within a days travel of each other. The access roads to the Snowmobile Parks are plowed. Grant dollars from the California State Off-Highway Vehicle Fund have financed the development of these Snowmobile Parks and provides funds for maintenance, snowmobile trail grooming, snow removal from parking area and access roads, trail signs and law enforcement patrol. These funds come from the fees you pay to register your snowmobile. The areas snowmobile program is maintained by local Forest Service and by the Mt. Shasta Sno-Mobilers, Inc.
