WINTER SEASON NOTIFICATION:
ALL winter trails are CLOSED, regardless of snowfall amounts. Read below for more info....
As the Natural Resources Committee has chosen to do for many years now, keeping safety in mind, Burnett County will not open any winter ATV or snowmobile recreational trails for our December 1 through March 31 riding season until after all gun deer hunting seasons. There is a muzzleloader season and also an antlerless deer season through December 13. The earliest we may consider opening ANY of these winter ATV or snowmobile trails will be on December 14. (This includes the Frozen Ground Trail System.) Please check back at that time for updates on our conditions.
Snowmobiles, ATVs and UTVs must be registered or licensed in order to ride. PLEASE NOTE: there were changes to the snowmobile registration and trail pass fees July 1, 2015. Please follow this link for Rules, Maps and Licensing information.
Below are some rules and regulations to follow once trails are open:
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 follow this link for contact information.
It is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on. If you are unsure of where Burnett County Forest Land is located, please refer to a
Burnett County Plat Book
, or you may check our website under
Caution: Groomers and trail maintenance vehicles may be on the trails at any time.
Please be careful, be respectful to other trail users, and ride safely.
