Winter Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Riding

icon for OHV riding

Winter brings a whole new experience to OHV riding in Minnesota. A number of state and grant-in-aid OHV trails are open year-round, with exciting challenges you’ll find only during winter.

As you explore winter ATV riding, please remember groomed, signed snowmobile trails are closed to OHVs and highway-licensed vehicles (HLVs) beginning December 1. Please respect private property and follow all signs.

Before you go, find out the snow conditions and check for OHV trail and road closures. Winter survival gear is strongly recommended and please use caution when riding in remote areas.
