Trail Updates

WINTER SEASON NOTIFICATION 1/06/2023:

After consultation with the Burnett County Snow Trails Association, ALL of Burnett County's state-funded snowmobile and winter ATV trails are now OPEN.

Please check with the individual snowmobile clubs for the status of club-managed trails.

Be sure to use caution as lakes and swamps may not yet be frozen, and some storm debris may still be present.

When trails are open, you may ride your ATV/UTV on state-funded Winter Use ATV Trails.  Winter Use ATV trails in Burnett County are marked with BLUE blazers.  Snowmobile trails are marked with ORANGE blazers.

Updates will be posted as conditions may change. 

 All snowmobiles, 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.

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

Some township ordinances allow for ATV/UTV use of the town roads and other do NOT allow it.  It is the riders' 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.

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

Caution: Groomers and 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.
