Welcome to the snowmobiling community of Lakeville! The Lakeville Sno Trackers Snowmobile Club supports the trail system throughout Lakeville. This interconnected trail system also runs east through Farmington; south through Elko, Lonsdale and Northfield; west through Prior Lake; and is also connected to the Minnesota State Trail System.
The club develops goals each year and works very closely with the City to ensure snowmobiling will continue in this area for many years to come. It is our main priority to keep everyone safe each season. We need your help in achieving this goal. Please obey the laws and make sound, safe decisions.
The future of snowmobiling is in our hands. We hope you have a good time on our trails and enjoy the snow! Mark Weber, President Lakeville Sno Trackers
