As the Snow Capital of Wisconsin, you can bet that
around Hurley, we have more than enough for riders all
throughout winter, even when other areas don’t! Our
average annual snowfall is 200 inches, but we’ve been
known to top the 300 mark in past seasons.
When it comes to the trails, the community is proud to
say that they are kept in outstanding shape. With the
dedication of the White Thunder Riders in the north
and the Mercer Sno-Goers in the south, and the Iron
County Forestry Department, the trails are routinely
groomed and kept in the best condition possible. They
pride themselves at making sure our visitors have the
best possible sledding experience they can.
Iron County boasts over 500 miles of scenic trails that
can take you through the beautiful county forest, to
Lake Superior, up the Penokee Mountains or to the waterfalls
for truly spectacular views. Combining our 500
miles with the neighboring counties and Michigan’s
U.P. provides you with over 1,000 miles of trails within
a 50 mile radius of Hurley. Make Hurley your Snowmobile
Hub to endless destinations.
