Did you know that we have 350 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in the Sumpter area? The Sumpter Valley Blue Mountain Snowmobile Club keeps these trails groomed all season – sometimes you may see them on the trail. Sometimes, the best way to see the “Orange Monster” is to ride with it!
On December 30th I rode with the groomer as it worked over 50 miles of snowmobile trails. That makes for a long day…..but if you don’t have a snowmobile, this is the next best thing!
On this day, Terry Nordstrom was working the #6550 trail, which works it’s way into the #7240 trail, which works it way over to the Elk Feeding Grounds , which you can access by taking the Old Auburn Road just outside of Baker City if you don’t have a snowmobile. On our way home, we worked the #6540 trail in the Deer Creek area, then took the 050 trail, which is just a mile or so of side trail full of twisty turns and bumps. Then we made our way back to the #6550 trail, which brought us back home.
You can stay up to date with trail conditions, and other information concerning the local snowmobile trails by visiting the Sumpter Trail Report.
