We welcome you to beautiful Lake of the Woods County , MN. The Drifters proudly support the maintenance and grooming of over 400 miles of land and lake trails in LoW and Koochiching counties along with the 90 mile John Beckel Northern Connection Trail to Big Falls; the longest uninterrupted wilderness trail in Minnesota. We are a non-profit organization which provides and maintains seven fully equipped trail shelters with light, heat, maps and first aid kits. Along with the shelters the Drifters collaborate with both Law Enforcement and Emergency Responders, promote safe riding campaigns and have a DNR certified Drifter member provide the 12 hour DNR Safety Certificate training annually to more than 35 area youth riders.
The Drifters hold a monthly meeting, club weekend outings at a Minnesota Resort, weekly winter trail ride opportunities, a Progressive dinner, cookouts and participate in community volunteer activities. Over the past years the Drifters have contributed over $155,000 to area charities, scholarships and community activities.
So come for a day and stay a week and experience the beauty of Northern Minnesota and all Lake of the Woods County has to offer.
