Welcome

Frederic, Michigan is located on Old 27 nine miles north of Grayling or 15 miles south of Gaylord and just two miles west of I-75 exit 264. Snowmobilers make Frederic one of their favorite stops in the winter. All trails lead to Frederic and if you ride anywhere in northern michigan it’s a stop that every rider wants to make. The village welcomes and caters to sledders. Most importantly, it’s a happening where they gather to meet and enjoy each other’s company. Most weekends during the riding season you will see many riders gathered around the bon fire next to Sledheads of Frederic, so be sure to stop by and throw a little wood on their fire.

Sledheads of Frederic posts honest online trail conditions information every day throughout the snowmobile season. They are located right on the trail directly across the street from the Swamp II Bar & Restaruant. They stock minor parts for all makes of sleds: belts, plugs, headlights, slides, idlers, carbides, helmets, bibs, jackets, gloves, etc. along with their own line of sledheads Snow Wear t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Frederic in the summertime is genuine small town America. No traffic jams or big stores here. It’s not unusual to see horses tied up at the hitching posts while their riders eat in the local restaurants. The Old 27 Corridor is also a favorite with bikers taking the scenic drive north. In the summer time we like to say that “the only things passing through Frederic are Horses and Harleys.”

The Swamp II Bar and Restaraunt and the Frederic Inn both offer a friendly meeting place, great food and burritos which northern Michiganders drive miles to enjoy throughout the year.

Be sure to stop in and see Pete at Sledheads, check out the cool selection of t shirts and of course don’t forget to say hi to Ellie the Sledheads beagle.
