 Washburn County

Current Trail Conditions as of Wednesday, May 22nd


ATV Trails:  

All Washburn County ATV trails will officially open Saturday morning May 25.  This marks the end of our spring closure as county ordinances set Saturday morning of Memorial Weekend as the trail opener.

Trail conditions are wet/wet/wet.  Significant recent rain events have resulted in unusually soft trail conditions.  Please tread lightly and PLEASE stay on the designated trail surface.

Also be aware that not all trails have been graded for the start of the season and riders may encounter portions of rough trails. Riders may also encounter minor trail washouts; Please ride with caution.
The Wild River Trail and the Railroad Grade to Shell Lake are open unless DNR Fire Danger is rated at Very High or Higher. Please refer to the below link for current fire danger status.

For Current Fire Danger information you can call 1-888-WIS-BURN or visit the WI DNR Website

Please note that motorcycles and dirt bikes are NOT permitted on our trails.

Land use agreements with private landowners for snowmobile trails do not permit the use of ATV's at any time of the year.


Bike Trails:  

Wildcat Mountain Bike Trails: 5/3/19 Wildcat Bike Trails are reopened for riding! The trails are in good condition in most places. Riders will encounter some standing water and several locations that have very soft spots. Please be courteous of these soft spots on the trails & try to avoid leaving tracks/ruts so the trails can stay in great shape all season. Have fun riding! 

College Street/Spooner City Park: 5/7/19 All the leaves have been blown off the single track, all the down trees have been removed and the trails have been trimmed & brushed out. Mountain bikes, trail runners, dog walkers, and hikers will find seven miles of single track & 7 kilometers  cross country ski trails to use.
