My thanks to Jim at Runamuk Rides for enabling my family to have a terrific outdoor day last weekend! At our request, Jim delivered two new two-up snowmobiles in the morning along with helmets in an assortment of sizes so we could find the right fit for my children. Jim arrived promptly at the time we agreed upon and made sure we knew how to operate all of the equipment. Within minutes, we were out on the trails enjoying the scenery. The snowmobiles were in top condition and we enjoyed riding them very much.

Thank you, Runamuk Rides! We'll be back....

03/01/14 Me and my buddy took a trip to Hayward, WI this last weekend and rented two new skidoo rev XP 600cc sleds. It was some of the best snowmobiling I have ever done.

The owner is a snowmobile enthusiast and loves to ride. He got us two of the nicest sled rentals
we ever had. I used to own 1996 MXZ and 1998 Formula Z 600cc sleds. It was very nice to ride the new machines and they handled great.

Jim Taylor the owner gave is good pointers on the trails and we saw four deer on the #63 trail.

The snow conditions were excellent and some spots had up to 36" of snow.
I wouldn't recommend going off trail you could get stuck.

We went to Cable, WI to the Lakewoods Lodge on Lake Namekagen, a 8 mile long lake and there were sled drag racing and a wiener roast. We got 120 miles in on the ride.

I am intrigued by the area and lots of beautiful forest trails to run.

The weather was cold and the trails were hot. super fun.

I would recommend them for your next ride.

We absolutely loved this trip and can't wait to do it again. My family and I, including two 8 year old boys, came all the way up from Tennessee to experience this. We did the full day trip and Runamuk Rides didn't disappoint. Jim was an excellent and friendly guide who ensured we had a complete and fun adventure.
