Washington/Ramsey Trail

Located in the Nemadji State Forest, the Washington/Ramsey Trail has 71 miles of riding. Tight, twisting trails climb through steep hills that open to scenic vistas overlooking the stream valleys below. The trail connects to the Matthew Lourey State Trail and the Gandy Dancer Trail, offering even more riding opportunities. The Nemadji State Forest is classified as LIMITED. Current kiosks with emergency information can be found at the Gafvert Campground. This trail is was started by the Washington/Ramsey County Wheelers and is now provided by Pine County and maintained by the South Metro ATV Club.

Winter Use: Forest OHV trails are open to winter riding, including some groomed trails for shared snowmobile and ATV use as mapped and signed. The Matthew Lourey State Trail (MLST) intersecting these trails is open to shared snowmobile and ATV use. ATVs are asked to stay off the groomed snowmobile trail if the temperature is above 30 degrees. There are no plowed parking lots.
