Trail Conditions

Trail Updates


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

We have received significant amounts of rain, please watch for high water in some areas.  
Use caution and look for signage regarding timber sale activity.  Trucks may be crossing trails.

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.

There is always a possibility of our trails closing if there is a Red Flag Alert posted due to fire danger.  Always check back for updates.

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 follow this link for the state definitions and registration/pass information.

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.  Please follow this link for contact information for the individual townships for their rules and regulations.

NO OFF TRAIL USE IS ALLOWED - Please stay on the trails.  Much of our trail system is on private land, and we appreciate the easements granted by our generous land owners. It only takes one person to have the entire trail system shut down.  

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.

 Please refer to Trails & Licensing for maps and regulations. Go to Trail Updates for current conditions and to sign up for email or text notifications.
