EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2015
Wisconsin Snowmobile Trail Pass Required
Current Press Release
Dodge County’s snowmobile trail system consists of 320.5 miles of publicly funded and groomed County Trails and roughly 180 miles of privately funded Club Trails that await the winter recreationist. The trails traverse the county through farm fields, woodlots, lowlands and open areas mostly over privately owned land thanks to our gracious landowners.
Roughly 20 miles are shared with ATVs on the Wild Goose State Trail (an abandoned railroad corridor) from Hwy 49 at the Fond du Lac County line south to Hwy 60.
Easy access to the trails can be made from connecting corridor trails in Dane, Columbia, Fond du Lac, Washington and Jefferson Counties or by trailering to the many parking areas along the trail at commercial establishments or public facilities.
Snowmobilers need to verify trail status prior to riding by calling the 24 Hour Trail Status Line at (920) 386-3705. Riding when trails are closed or riding outside of the marked trail corridor is considered trespassing and may subject the rider to a citation with significant fees.
Wisconsin law requires those who use Wisconsin snowmobile, ATV or UTV trails to display either Wisconsin registration or a Nonresident Trail Pass. Non-resident trail passes are available through the DNR or locally (See List of Local Sellers).
To report trail violations, get registration numbers and sled description of violators and report to 1-800-TIP-WDNR or the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department at 920-386-3726.
