Snowmobiling From The Cisco Chain of Lakes
By DMG, 2005
Dean and Dale had arrived Saturday night and by Sunday morning everyone was ready
to ride. As our sleds warmed up we checked out the new Yamaha Rage, a 3 cyl. 4 stroke
Dean had brought up. Yamaha, Arctic Cat, Polaris and Ski-Doo, they were all
here and ready to play! Out across Thousand Island lake and into the
shown left, to Cisco Lake.
The Cisco Chain of Lakes offers a unique riding experience as you wind through channels and
Islands to and from the trail, restaurants and resort. The ice was about 2 feet thick
with fresh snow on top for traction. Smooth sailing if you followed the packed snow
along both sides of the barrel markers.
There is an abundance of wildlife in the area this time of year.
Many bald eagles inhabit the lakes and they are a common sight but
it's the whitetail you have to be careful of. Several times on this trip
a close call on the lake and trail has occurred with sled and deer, so keep your eyes open.
As you come through the channel from Thousand Island you will find
a nice little climb on the power line break cut through the hills.
Up the boat ramp we rode and on to
north where it meets trail 2. From here we headed into Watersmeet for gas
and a quick snack, then more east on trail 2.
