About DATA
Trail Info & Map
Services & Links


Located midway between the Twin Cities and Fargo-Moorhead, the Douglas Area Trails Association maintains 366 miles of snowmobile trails in west central Minnesota’s Hardwood Hills and River Prairie landscapes.  Dotted with numerous lakes, Douglas County’s DATA Trails offer a real combination of open flatlands to heavily wooded and often hilly riding.  Snowmobilers often comment about the spectacular views afforded by many scenic locations, and abundant wildlife they encounter while riding.  Every community in Douglas County is connected by trail, so you are never far from food, gas, services, or accommodations.  36 miles of our system is the blacktopped, multi-use Central Lakes Trail which connects us to Fergus Falls to the north or the St. Cloud Area to the south, and provides quick and easy access to trails all across Douglas County. Help support DATA by joining today!


Family membership is $40 a year with $20 going to MNUSA, the state snowmobile trail association. Your membership contribution helps provide our trail insurance coverage, new trail developments, special trail projects, double grooming during the height of the winter season, and helps pay for our annual landowner appreciation dinner. The $40 combined membership is a great value so please support us by joining DATA! You can also obtain your membership at any of our local snowmobile dealers; Ollie's Service, Woodsmen Power Products, Evansville Sports & Lawn, DS Powersports, and Country Cat in Sauk Centre.
