    wanting to go out west questions
    Posted by Catsp600 on Sunday, January 06, 2013 8:20 AM

    the wife and I are thinking of going out west. We were told to go to yellowstone or even the black hills national  forest. Everything you see is powder riding, we are not that aggressive we like riding on groom trails like whats in wisconsin. We love riding trails in forest. some people say we need to rent sleds. I have a hard time renting when I own. Can someone give us some advise. Maybe this would turn into a nightmare instead of a good time??? We have CATs F570 and snopro 600

    Yellowstone Park is exclusively on trail riding but you wil need to rent machines and a guide.  The West Yellowstone/ Island Prk ID area has many miles of groomed trail and lots of areas to play with out getting into steep and deep riding.  You may have to have your machines set up for the elevation change, check with your dealer or service shop.

    Another great place with fantastic trails is Togwotee.

    You can stay in Debois (cheap) and trailer up 10 minutes or so to Tie Hack parking area and ride from there.

    They groom the trails literallly every night.

    it's also about 6 hours closer than West Yellowstone or Island Park.

    Link to trail system.

    Here is a map of West Yellowstone/Island Park trails. They are connected.

    There is a big plus to riding from West Yellowstone.

    You can ride from where ever you stay and don't have to trailer anywhere.

    There is lots to do each night after riding.

    If you want to take a day off you can hit the Grizzly/wolf habitat and see the critters.

    You can spend around 120 each and take a snowcoach into the park or spend 200 each and take a sled in.
