Snowmobiling is a popular pastime in and around Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. A number of unplowed roads lead to major points of interest within the lakeshore, particularly Miners Castle and Log Slide.

Snowmobiles are permitted on unplowed lakeshore roads used by motorists in summer, as well as the frozen waters of Lake Superior and Grand Sable Lake.

These unplowed roads (and the shoulders of plowed park roads) are open to snowmobiling in conformance with state law. With the exception of the trails listed below, snowmobiles are not permitted where motor vehicles are not allowed in summer.
