With over 180 miles of trails and hundreds of Forest Roads, Bayfield County presents plenty of opportunities to explore Northern Wisconsin’s natural beauty off the beaten path.  More than a sport, ATVs offer a chance to connect with nature and experience Wisconsin’s glacier-carved musical landscape.  Maintained by Federal, State, and individual organizations, all designated ATV and UTV trails are the perfect way to embrace the outdoors.

Experience the natural beauty of the North Woods up close. Riders can see wildlife such as whitetail deer, foxes, wild turkeys, badgers, and even black bears!  Adventure is just outside our doorstep.
