Wisconsin's public ATV trails offer thousands of miles of riding opportunities.

  • Be aware that these trails are lightly groomed and riders are likely to encounter narrow sand trails, rough moguls, steep hills, stumps, rocks, brush, loose surfaces, and other hazards.
  • Wisconsin's ATV trails and routes are designed for two-way travel. Users always need to be alert for oncoming traffic.
    • Trails are designed for snowmobiles and ATVs and are recommended for responsible riders only.
    • Be alert at all times when riding on routes designated for other vehicles, including automobiles and trucks. Many times, drivers of larger vehicles fail to notice smaller vehicles such as snowmobiles and ATVs.
  • Prepare for safety.
    • Always make sure your ATV is in good operating condition.
    • Check the gas level before riding. In an hour, riders can travel farther than they can walk in eight hours.
    • Don't forget your tools, trail maps, a first-aid kit, and a compass.
    • Always ride with a companion.
    • Know your local emergency telephone numbers before you ride.
