Message from Wood County Sheriff’s Department:

With the opening of the snowmobile trails, the Wood County Sheriff’s Department Snowmobile Patrol has started enforcing the safe use of the trail system. Several members participate in this patrol and the department has snowmobiles that are equipped for this purpose.

While the patrol enforces all snowmobile laws, emphasis is placed on detecting operation while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speed, reckless operation, and trespassing off trail. Engaging in these activities not only endangers the safety of trail users, but also jeopardizes the access of the trails.

Private property owners are heavily relied upon to allow the trail on their property. Please respect the trails and private lands.

Please operate safe, operate sober, stay on the marked trails and enjoy your time snowmobiling!
