Monte Cristo Snowmobiling
This area is included in our Hardware Ranch Monte Cristo and Logan Canyon group of snowmobile complexes.
Below are some specific items of interest about the trails included in the Monte Cristo Complex. Check with local U.S. Forest Service offices for trail guides and travel maps of ungroomed trails and other areas open to snowmobile use.
Curtis Creek/Ant Flat
This 63-mile loop offers opportunities for all snowmobilers. The trail is flat and well groomed with generally gentle grades and tremendous views of the Cache Valley. In many areas the trail is lined with tall trees that open to spacious play areas. Several switchbacks provide enough variety to keep everyone interested, without becoming overwhelming. Riders are cautioned about icy conditions in the shaded areas on the north end of Ant Flat Trail. Flat light and ice require snowmobilers to slow down in this area. In addition, the Ant Flat Trail crosses private property throughout much of its length.
Snowmobilers are cautioned to stay on the trail to avoid trespassing on private property.
Heading north from Hardware Ranch, this trail features gradual climbs and falls through the trees. This trail is especially scenic and uncrowded, making it a favorite of local riders. Access to some of the best play and hill climbing areas in the region are via this trail.
The Millie Springs spur provides access to the complex from the east side of Monte Cristo near Woodruff. This short spur climbs rapidly through a tree-lined canyon to the Monte Cristo summit and the junction with Curtis Creek Trail.
