If you’re looking for a new winter activity in eastern Pennsylvania, exploring the area via snowmobile is an exciting, fun adventure. With numerous long, scenic snowmobile trails, eastern Pennsylvania is one of the top areas in the state to go snowmobiling. Since most people don’t know about the premier snowmobile trails right in their backyard, we’re here to map out some of the best ones in the area.
Port Clinton Trail
The Port Clinton Trail runs between Berks and Schuylkill counties through the Lackawanna State Forest. The forest contains smaller mountain ranges with numerous rivers at the bottom. The 4-mile trail will take you through some of eastern Pennsylvania’s most beautiful forestry.
Located in the northeast corner of the Lackawanna State Forest, the Thornhurst Trail spans 21 miles through part of the Pocono and Eastcentral Mountains region. Snowmobilers will probably ride around more wildlife on the Thornhurst Trail than any other trail in eastern Pennsylvania. The area is full of swamps, lakes, and creeks as you travel through one of the more scenic regions of the Lackawanna State Forest.
The Haldeman/Greenland Trail is an 11-mile snowmobile trail that runs through the Weiser State Forest and would be great for more experienced snowmobilers. Located in Dauphin County, the trails in the Weiser State Forest are located on ridges and valleys, which in turn create optimal terrain for great snowmobiling. You’ll cross rivers and creeks and even circle around a wildlife opening. However, some of the terrain is difficult, so familiarizing yourself with the trail before heading out is best.
Dixon Miller Trail
The Delaware State Forest features about 121 miles of snowmobile trails, so it’s usually a hub for snowmobilers during the winter months. However, this winter, five major trails in the Delaware State Forest will be closed.
The Dixon Miller trail will be one of most popular trails in the area since the others are closed for the season. It will take your through Monroe County beside Indian Mountain Lake and Highway 115. You’ll even border state game land. The winter scenery will be unbeatable. The Dixon Miller Trail will officially open on December 14.
Snow Hill Trail
The Snow Hill Trail, just like the Dixon Miller Trail, is one of the many snowmobile trails located in the Delaware State Forest. This north-south trail runs along the border of Monroe and Pike counties and through the Delaware State Forest Logging operation. Ride with caution, however, because the trail does cross over some public roads.
With hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails right in your backyard, planning snowmobile trips this season should be easy and fun. Eastern Pennsylvania offers some of the most scenic trails that wind through forests and valleys, which leads to fun rides. Snowmobilers of all different levels of expertise can have a great time on the many diverse trails.
