ATV & UTV
It’s time to hit the trails! Over 100 miles of ATV & UTV trails link to an ever-growing Northwest Wisconsin ATV Trail system and Washburn County is a premier ATV destination that you won’t want to miss. Multiple loops throughout the county, linking to the Wild Rivers and Tuscobia State Trails, create an ATV experience like no other. Ample ATV parking areas and access to lodging and restaurants make planning an ATV vacation easy.
ATV trails typically open the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and stay open through the fall when the snowmobile and winter use trails open. Fall is an especially enjoyable time to explore the area trails and take in the breathtaking fall colors. If you haven’t been out on the ATV Scenic Tour before, you’ll want to grab the brochure and get out and explore!

ATV & UTV Business Directory:
Washburn County is a very ATV & UTV friendly area to visit and as you'd expect, we have several businesses to get you ready to hit the trails.
The area ATV clubs work extremely hard on our trail systems. These volunteers put in hundreds of hours maintaining the trail systems to keep them in great shape for all of our visitors and residents. If you come across them while out on the trail, please be courteous as the grooming equipment does not move quickly; wait until there is a safe opportunity to go around the groomer.
Our ATV clubs are always looking for new members who share their enthusiasm for the sport of ATVing. If you are interested in joining one of the area clubs, offering some time to help with the trails, would like to attend one of their fun events, or just want to say thanks for their hard work, please contact them below:
