Burnett County Forest & Parks
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:17:09 AM »
Fall riding season begins tomorrow, Sept. 16

From September 16 - November 30 of each year the Burnett County Forest Woods Trails & County Forest Roads are open for ATV/UTV use.  What this means is that you can ride your registered ATV/UTV on any woods trail, snowmobile trail, and ATV trail that is located on County Forest Lands, as long as it is not bermed, gated, or signed as closed and is at least eight feet wide.  (A good rule of thumb is that if you can drive your truck down the trail, then you take your ATV/UTV down it.)  NO off trail use is allowed and operation on private lands is illegal unless you have permission from the private landowner.

It is VERY important to note that all of these trails are currently multi-use trails.  This means that any street legal, licensed vehicle can use these trails during this time, (cars and trucks for example). It's also important to note that these trails are no longer being maintained during this time of year.  For these reasons we call the State-Funded Summer Use ATV Trail System closed, even though you can still ride the majority of these same trails because they are located on County Forest Lands and township roads that currently allow for the use of ATV/UTVs during this time of year. 

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 contact the individual townships for their rules and regulations.

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 refer to the WI DNR website for these definitions.

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.
