Matthew Lourey State Trail OHV
This page is specifically for off-highway vehicle uses of the Matthew Lourey State Trail. Portions of the trail are open to seasonal ATV and OHM use. These segments occur where the trail coincides with other trails designated for motorized use, including approximately 11 miles in the Nemadji and 5 miles in the St. Croix State Forest. The trail features rolling terrain with occasional hills.
In winter, ATV use is permitted from Harlis Road in the Nemadji State Forest to County Road 173 in the St. Croix State Forest, and in the Chengwatana State Forest. ATVs are only allowed to ride when the air temperature is 30 degrees or below. This helps us keep trails sustainable and increases safety for everyone, including our trail groomers.
Off-highway vehicle riders may encounter horseback riders, mountain bikers, hikers and backpackers. All users must yield to horses. Motorized users should stay to the right side of the trail except when safely passing other users.
