ATV & UTV Trails: 

Recent rainfall has alleviated fire danger across a majority of Washburn County and trail surface conditions have stabilized after the spring thaw.  Washburn County ATV trails are open! 

Current conditions have allowed us to open a full week earlier than the traditional Memorial Weekend dictated by ordinance.  Clubs are currently opening gates and inspecting trails for down trees or other obstacles after rain and wind events earlier this week. 

County staff are currently grading but not all trails will be patrolled prior to the opening. Trail conditions will be variable.  Riders may encounter rough conditions, washouts and wet/soft areas.  Please ride with caution, tread lightly and stay on designated trail surfaces.

Mountain Bike Trails: 

Wildcat Mountain Bike Trail: (5/24/22) - Wildcat trails are open for mountain biking! Trails have been cleared of major branches and some trees from winter and spring storms. Leaf blowing and maintenance will continue as needed, and there are some wet areas in isolated areas, so be kind to the trails in these locations. Enjoy the trails!

College Street (Spooner City Park): (5/24/22) - "Prep Work" continues at College Street Park and Ryan Mckinney has been blowing out the leaves at the plateau sections of the single track at City Park. It appears most of the frost is out and the trails are holding up to some of the early riding...the wider the tire the better. A few trees are down, but we will try to snip them up soon. The east end is very ridable with an occasional branch down from the high winds here and there. Enjoy!

Hiking Trails:

Beaver Brook Trails (5/24/22) - No report at this time. 

Hunt Hill Trails: (5/24/22) - The Discovery Trail (labeled Barred Owl Trail on trail maps) is a great experience for families. Each month, 8-15 themed items are hidden along this 1/3 mile trail. See how many items you can find! Share a selfie on social media using #HuntHill to be entered into the monthly giveaway! After the snow has melted in the Northwoods, trails have become quite wet & muddy in places. Trails that are open & receive lots of sunshine seem to be drying out nicely but prepare for wet conditions in most parts. You may even see a few patches of snow here & there! Hiking trails are in good, early-season condition. You may encounter wet areas on the trail, but spring is in the air and you'll find beauty all around!  

College Street (Spooner City Park): (5/24/22) - After the snow has melted in the Northwoods, trails have become quite wet & muddy in places. Trails that are open & receive lots of sunshine seem to be drying out nicely but prepare for wet conditions in most parts. City Park offers a portion of paved trails that may have some water in spots from the spring thaw.
