Snowmobiling brings thousands of visitors to Traverse City each season. The Grand Traverse Area Snowmobile Club (GTASC) grooms and maintains around 200 miles of some the Northern Michigans best trails for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing and Ranch Rudolf is right in the hub of things. We are nestled right into the trail system and if you’re looking for a full weekend of riding, these trails connect with some other area trail systems as well. To top it off, the groomers are stationed right here also which means exceptional trails to ride. All of the groomer drivers are snowmobile enthusiasts who volunteer their own time to help maintain the trails for the love of the sport.

*Please note Ranch Rudolf is not a staging area and the use of our parking lot is only open to our own lodging guests, not to those just wanting to park trailers and ride out from here. Thank you!
