This handbook is designed to introduce you to Iowa
laws governing Snowmobiles and
to provide basic information about the safe operation
of these vehicles. This handbook is not intended as
a substitute for the owner’s manual that came
with your vehicle.
Snowmobiles have been increasing
in popularity over the past decade. As trails and recreation
areas become more crowded, it’s more important
than ever for people to operate these vehicles safely
This handbook is divided into three sections: It's
the Law, Basics
for all Snowmobiles, and state-specific information
including trails maps, trail signs, and Iowa Department
of Natural Resources contact information.
