OHV Trail Closures

Please choose trails as close to home as possible. When at the trailhead or on the trail, maintain social distancing of six to ten feet from those you encounter at the trailhead or on the trail, including other riders, trail crews, conservation officers and trail ambassadors.

As of Friday, February 26, warm temperatures have prompted the closure of ATV use on shared, groomed trails in the Nemadji and St. Croix state forests, including the Matthew Lourey State Trail. To preserve the trail base for everyone, ATV riders should stay off the multi-use groomed trail whenever the temperature is above 30 degrees.

For information on roads and trails on county land, please contact the appropriate county.

Make sure to check for these signs while you're in the state forests
