Snowmobile trails around the Big Sandy Lake area are known for their scenic beauty and for their meticulous grooming. A stay at Big Sandy Lodge is the perfect compliment to hours spent out exploring Aitkin County’s 600 plus miles of groomed snowmobile trails. With so much territory to explore, there’s no end to the adventure! The Aitkin County snowmobile trails connect to other trail systems as well and combined offer over 1,500 miles of snowmobile trails for you to ride in the region. Some of these trails also double as ATV trails (please pick up a snowmobile trails map in the Lodge for details on which trails are designated for non-winter ATV trails.)
You’ll enjoy rides through some of Minnesota’s most pristine forests as well as a chance to head in to small towns as you meander through the county. Back at Big Sandy Lodge, a delicious dinner and our well-appointed sports bar will await your return. Sooth tired muscles in the hot tub and sauna and grab a cup of hot chocolate for a chance to catch up with your fellow riders around our blazing fireplaces. Rest in the comfort of your rustic, Up North room or cabin and get ready for another hard-hitting day of heading out on the trails!
