Notice of Seasonal Trail Opening
Washburn, WI (April 28, 2017) – Bayfield County ATV/UTV trails will officially open Monday, May 1, 2017. The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest trails will also open on May 1, rescinding the closure order from earlier this year.
Although many areas are in good shape, recent wet weather and high winds have created some issues so please use extra caution when riding the trails once they are open. Trail conditions are variable and in early spring condition, so please tread lightly and report any downed trees or other issues as soon as possible to the Bayfield County Forestry & Parks Department at (715) 373-6114.
As always, riders should use caution when out on the trails. Please stay on the designated trails and routes and follow the trail signs. Be aware that there may be grooming equipment on the trails.
