OHV Trail Detail

Spider Lake Trails

Spider Lake Trails

The Spider Lake Trails travel 29 miles throughout Foot Hills State Forest. From smooth and sandy to rough and rocky, the trails provide a challenging ride as they curve around lakes and ponds, follow ridges, and traverse several hills and slopes throughout the forest. Trails are open year-round, except on groomed, signed snowmobile trails. These trails are provided and maintained by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Winter Use: Forest OHV trails allow winter OHV use, with the exception of Snowway 1 between December 1st and March 31st. OHVs may cross Snowway 1 at 90 degree angle to cross to other side.
