Summer-Use ATV/UTV Trails open Friday, May 27

During the summer season, (which runs through September 15), you may operate your ATV/UTV on State-funded Summer-Use Trails ONLY.  Summer-Use Trails are designated with a WHITE blazer. 

Remember, it is illegal to ride your ATV/UTV on the Gandy Dancer Trail in Burnett County south of Highway 77 at this time of year.

All ATVs and UTVs must display either a Wisconsin registration or an ATV trail pass to ride on our trails.  Only machines meeting the state definition of an ATV/UTV are allowed on these trails. Please visit the Wisconsin DNR website for more information.

Trails will close in the event of a Red Flag Alert due to fire danger.  Always check back for updated information before riding.

Use caution and look for signage regarding timber sale activity.  Trucks may be crossing trails.

Some township ordinances allow for ATV/UTV use of the town roads and others do NOT allow it.  It is the rider's responsibility to contact the township in which you plan to ride in and get the current rules pertaining to ATVs/UTVs and the town roads.  

NO OFF-TRAIL USE IS ALLOWED.  Please stay on the designated trails to protect our trail agreements with private landowners. 

Caution:  Trail maintenance vehicles may be on the trails at any time.

It is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on.  Please be careful, be respectful to other trail users, and ride safely.
