  • Last update: 08 Mar 2015.
  • Please report trail conditions to (867)-667-7680 or
    The trail conditions listed above are only as up to date as riders like you help us make them, as we rely heavily on updates we recieve from members e-mailing us after they’ve been out on the trails. Also please report any damaged or missing signs, gates, etc. The sooner we know about a problem the sooner our volunteers can fix it.
  • Respect all trail users…
    The vast majority of the trails in the Yukon are considered “multi-use”.  This means they are open to snowmobiles, skis, dog sleds, ATVs, bikes, hikers, horses, and everything in between.  Please respect all the user groups, and slow down and give extra room when passing others on the trails.
  • Please give way to groomers…
    Sleds towing groomers are far heavier and less maneuverable than most other sleds on the trail. For the safety of both yourself and our volunteers please slow down and give them the right of way.  Also be aware that our groomers may be on any of our trails, at any time of day or night.
  • Please note wheeled vehicles (Including but not limited to cars, trucks, ATVs,  side by sides, dirtbikes, etc.) are not allowed on any of the snowmobile trails or multi-use trails from November 1st through March 31st each year.   All it takes is one wheeled vehicle to shred a trail’s snow base and ruin it for everyone else.
  • For gate access please call us at 667-7680.  Over the years we’ve spent countless volunteer hours and donated funds repairing and replacing torn down gates, meanwhile the whole time there was a perfectly good key sitting beside a perfectly good phone.
