ALL WINTER TRAILS ARE STILL OPEN - BUT CONDITIONS ARE CHANGING!!
Please be sure to review all the information below before riding the trails in Burnett County:
3/11/14: Burnett County Winter Trails are currently open - however, conditions are changing! The majority of the trails are in good condition. Grooming on the trails is minimal right now due to the warmer temperatures. Snowmobiles will find very poor conditions, encountering dirt in areas, on trail 151 between the St. Croix Trail and Big Hill Road. Conditions are still ok in this area for ATVs. Watch for icy and slushy spots throughout the county. Be sure to check back often for trail conditions as the forecast is for temps into the 40s off and on all week.
Because of the early snowfall this winter, lakes have a lot of slush on them, so please continue to use caution over lakes and swamps.
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.
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.
It is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on.
All snowmobiles, ATVs and UTVs must be registered or licensed in order to ride. Please follow this link for Rules, Maps and Licensing information.
