Snowmobiling season is officially underway in Indiana, even though there is not a flake of snow to be found (as of this writing, here in Southern Indiana). That's okay, though - the season runs until March 31, 2024, so I can assume there will be plenty of snow to enjoy between now and then.

Unfortunately, a majority of counties in Indiana - pretty much all of Southwestern Indiana - do NOT allow snowmobile use. The few counties that do allow it are located in Northern Indiana, where you will find more than 200 miles of snowmobiling trails. According to the DNR, the following trails are the best to choose from.

Buffalo Run Snowmobile Trail
