Voyageur Country ATV

Voyageur Country ATV

The Voyageur Country ATV trail system uses a combination of forest roads, wooded trails and county road rights-of-way to connect the communities of Cook, Crane Lake, Buyck, Camp 5 township and Ely. The system also ties into the existing Prospectors Trail system, and it will tie into the Quad Cities trail system when it is built from Pfeiffer Lake to County Road 361. The Voyageur Country trail system passes through numerous land and forest types, with many overlooks and stops along the way including Vermilion Falls, Pelican River overlook and the new Vermilion River trail bridge. This trail system is provided by St. Louis County and maintained by the Voyageur Country ATV Club.

Note: Several additional miles are available on the Voyageur Country ATV Route.
