ATV Trails:  

All Washburn County ATV trails are open at this time. All trails are now cleared and trails are open for travel. Please be aware that riders will encounter numerous small branches and other debris on the trail surface.  In addition, heavy rains also caused numerous minor washouts and trail surfaces may be rough in some areas.  Riders are urged to ride with caution.  Trail grooming efforts will be underway over the next several weeks.  The ATV clubs in Washburn County worked diligently to open trail systems as soon as possible and their hard work is appreciated.

There are two locations on the Tuscobia State Trail in Sawyer County that are closed due to storm damages—one just west of Radisson, one just east of Birchwood. Sawyer County has established alternative routes around these closed sections.

Please note that the Washburn County ATV Trails will remain open unless fire danger is listed as very high, or higher. This also includes the Wild River Trail and the railroad grade to Shell Lake. Riders are encouraged to check on fire danger levels before operating on the trails.

Off-Highway Motorcycles:

Motorcycles Prohibited on Washburn County Trails

September 28, 2016 - Much confusion is centered around the October 1, 2016 potential allowances for Off-Highway Motorcycles on state funded ATV trails.  Per County Ordinance, all Washburn County ATV trails are closed to two-wheel motorcycles.  This closure affects all ATV trails, including the Wild Rivers State Trail.

 

Bike Trails:  

Washburn County Area Bike Report: Volunteers have been out on the Wildcat Mountain Bike Trail and City Park Trail cleaning up downed wood after the storm.  City park ski/walking trail will be mowed as soon as it is dry enough.
