Parks and Trails

Land
A number of snowmobile, ATV, offroad motorcycle, off highway vehicle (OHV), and other Recreational Trail opportunities exist in Pine County.  Many of these trails are maintained and operated by local clubs through funding from the Minnesota DNR grant-in-aid trail program.

Riding along roadways and in public right-of-way is restricted and prohibited in accordance with State Law.  Please know the laws and enjoy your ride.  Pine County did recently adopt a Pine County ATV public right of way policy.  If you are a recognized club member we encourage you to explore your trail expansion options through this policy.

Trails are located on state forest lands, county managed tax forfeit lands, and private property throughout the county.  PLEASE RIDE RESPONSIBLY.  Many landowners have been kind enough to provide easements across their properties.  Protect and appreciate their lands by remaining on marked trails.

Please contact the Moose Lake DNR Trails and Waterways office and the links below for more information and trail resources on the numerous multi-use (ATV, offroad motorcycle, OHV, snowmobile, skiing, biking etc.) trails in the area - www.mndnr.gov/state_trails or 218-460-7021. 

ATV, offroad motorcycle, and OHV riders are encouraged to view the MN Department of Natural Resources off highway vehicle site at www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/index.html  and the local www.straightarrows.org , www.pineridersatv.com , and www.wrcw.org sites.  

Snowmobile enthusiasts are encouraged to view the MN Department of Natural Resources site at www.dnr.state.mn.us/snowmobiling/index.html and the local www.northernpineriders.com and www.flamessnowmobileclub.com web sites for great local information and maps.
