Trail Report

March 23, 2023 

As spring is in the air and you’re thinking of ATV/UTV riding if you haven’t rode this winter here is some trail info:
*County trails; typically in dark green areas on map (mostly north of Round Lake) are closed to UTV’s and anything over 900lb during the winter when grooming is happening. After this weekend grooming will start to end so those trails will allow ATV/UTV riding until April 1st. They will then close until May 15th.
*Chequamegon National Forest: Light green on map. Closed to ATV/UTV traffic on March 15th and will remain closed until May 1st.
*Tuscobia (trail 10): there is no spring closure so you may ride east to west across the county. This connects to neighboring counties (Washburn and Price – see those counties for their trail updates).
*Off of the Tuscobia is trail 11 or “9 Mile Loop”, while this is county forest they do keep this open with no spring closure.
*During spring closure ATV/UTV legal roads/routes are open, please know the difference between these and trails (map legend and trail signage will decipher).
*While on the map, recent news shared that several roads/routes that were legal to ride on in the LCO have been closed, please note this info:
-County Rd CC (CTH N to Conger Rd)
-County Rd E (CTH K to Williams Rd)
-County Rd E (CTH K to Reserve Rd)
-County Rd H (Blueberry Fire Lane to Blueberry Ave)
-County Rd K (County Rd E to Indian Dr)
-County Rd N (CTH NN to CTH CC)
-County Rd NN (CTH N to Gurno Lake Rd)
As spring moves along we will update on openings, brushing, etc.

Non-Resident Trail Passes are required for ATVs.  (WI residents do not need a trail pass but are required to display their registration sticker.)

State law requires ATVs to always operate with headlights on.

Sawyer County allows the use of Side by Sides on ALL ATV TRAILS, including those in the Chequamegon National Forest.
