Remote border crossings, permissible with an official permit and passport, are possible at two points.

MILLINOCKET, MAINE
Millinocket is centrally located, featuring a fantastic trail network and connections in every direction. Vast tracts of land are owned by logging companies and local clubs have cultivated good relations with them. The terrain is hilly and dotted with lakes. Mount Katahdin dominates the landscape.
Trail Towns: Millinocket, Shin Pond, Medway
Highlights: Mount Katahdin, Elephant Mountain, Chesuncook Lake House

STRAWBERRY RIVER / MILL HOLLOW, UTAH
The Strawberry River and Mill Hollow areas are just “up the hill” from Heber City and in a few short miles the slopes get steep and the snow gets deep. Like most Western locales, riders start from the trailhead and can cruise the trails or head off into the deep stuff. Mountain sleds are a must and having a local guide is a wise idea.
Trail Towns: None
Highlights: Strawberry River & Reservoir

OCONTO COUNTY, WISCONSIN
This large, stair-step shaped county northwest of Green Bay is a lesser-known but nonetheless outstanding venue for snowmobiling. The northern half is characterized by the Nicolet National Forest, while the southern portion is flatter and more agricultural in nature – but a web of wonderful trails covers the entire county.
Trail Towns: Townsend, Lakewood, Mountain, Suring, Gillett, Lena, Oconto Falls, Oconto
Highlights: Nicolet National Forest, Nicolet State
