Subject: ATV Trail re-opening
The entire Marinette County ATV /UTV Trail System will be re-opened on May 1, 2020. The trail system was closed for spring break up and to allow for the trails to be cleared of downed trees and debris. Thank you for you cooperation while the trail system was closed.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, please follow the guidelines found in the Marinette County Outdoor Recreation Season Plan found on Marinette County's website in the Media Releases section under Administration.

Florence County ATV trails will open on May 1st 2020 at 12:01 AM. Please use extreme caution, as there may still be spots that have ice and/or snow cover.
There will be some areas of trail in the USFS Property (Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest) that may have closures. Trails affected would be: Trail F7A - F14.
Please ride with caution as many sections of the trail system are still in very poor condition and keep an eye out for groomers as they will most likely be sharing the trail in an effort to smooth things out after the past winter season.
Make sure to follow Covid-19 guidelines and be respectful to one another. Let's make this a safe recreational season.
Support your local ATV club and the hard work they do to maintain the Florence County ATV trail system.
Questions or concerns may be directed to the Florence County Forestry and Parks Department (715) 528-3207 option 4. For more trail information please visit our website at:
