Is a person allowed to ride a snowmobile up to loch lomond? How deep is the snow ya think?

My best guess is you can since ATVs are allowed. Snow's probably 1-2'. Thought someone posted something about a gate once but I don't recall seeing one. You should be careful where the trail basically goes thru a creek a couple times--not sure how swampy that could get on a snowmobile. Good luck and be safe!

Not sure about snowmobiles but I'm guessing Bron is right. As far as snow goes, looks like around 21". In the future, you can find out what the snow depth is across the state at the following website:

Two sets of gates, one at bottom, one at top. Road between is a few miles and weaves in and out of sun/wind exposure. Gate at top spans the entire (constricted) roadway...but you may be able to squeeze a sled through, not sure.

Its beautiful up there, especially when the summertime drunks aren't shooting-up and/or tearing-up the place.

Never had super-good luck on that lake, but always catch something.

^^^^^and I've called the number Bron has above and talked with good folks who know whats going on in their district. .

Yeah i called. The lady said its different when your on snow and not on dirt. She said yeah i was allowed to be up there on my sled but to be mindful of the property as its forrest service or something on one side and your not supposed to be off roading.
