Moose River Trail

Moose River Trail

Located in the Land O' Lakes State Forest, the Moose River Trail follows gently-rolling terrain through dense woods and around small lakes and ponds. Much of the trail originated from past logging roads and provides a smooth, relatively flat ride, ideal for both novice and experienced riders. This scenic area is the start of the great pine forests of Northern Minnesota. This trail is provided by Cass County and maintained by the Over the Hills Gang ATV Club.

Winter Use: Trails are open in winter for ATV use. There is some grooming and a plowed parking lot at this site.
