Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling in Sumpter and Halfway and Unity / Burnt River .

Old man winter transforms the Baker County landscape into a playground each winter with more than 900 miles of snowmobile trails. If snowmobiling is your thing, then Sumpter, Halfway, and Unity are where you want to be.

Sumpter has access to hundreds of miles of groomed trails in the breathtaking Elkhorn Mountains of Eastern Oregon! And….in most cases, you can hit the trails right from your lodging!

In Halfway, the main trail heads right up into the Wallowa Mountains north of town and ends at Twin Lakes in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest at near 7,000 feet elevation.

From Unity you can explore the Burnt River Canyon, and the Elkhorn mountains while exploring some of Easten Orgon’s most spectacular winter scenery.

More information about each of these Baker County snowmobiling destinations can be found by contacting the local snowmobile clubs in Sumpter, Unity, and Halfway. Each of these clubs also host a number of snowmobiling events each year including annual snowmobile poker runs in Sumpter and Halfway on Presidents Day Weekend.

The Sumpter Snowmobile Poker Run and Outhouse Races are always the Saturday fo Presidents Day Weekend and the Halfway Panhandle Snowmobile Cl;ub’s Poker Run is always the Sunday of Presidents Day weekend, making this the perfect three day winter weekend for exploring the Elkhorn and Wallowa mountains of Eastern Oregon on your snowmobile.

Whether you ride a snowmobile, ski, or snowshoe, Baker County has the snowy mountain adventures you’re looking for.
