DOUGLAS COUNTY TRAIL UPDATE 3/6/2020.

Douglas county received a little bit of snow yesterday and currently ALL of Douglas County trails are open. As temperatures start to warm up watch for trail closures in the update.

It is critical that we respect the landowners who allow us to utilize their property.

We will provide updates as conditions change. Deer have been reported on trails so keep an eye out while traveling.

Please share this info with anyone that you believe would be interested…our goal is to inform as many trail riders as possible.

Burnett County Trail Closure

ALL Burnett County Winter Snowmobile and ATV/UTV trails will close at 11:59 p.m. tonight, Monday, March 2, 2020.

After consulting with the Burnett County Snow Trails Association, all trails will be closed at 11:59 p.m. Monday, March 2. With warmer temperatures this past weekend and in the forecast, the decision to close trails is to protect the trail base from damage on county, state, and privately owned lands and agricultural fields. It is important that we respect the landowners who graciously allow us to use their property.

Burnett County: Deteriorating Trail Conditions

The MAJORITY of the Snowmobile and Winter ATV Trails are open but in poor condition. Trails are deteriorating quickly. Bare ground is starting to show in open areas. Please also watch for icy spots on the trails - read below for closed trails and important information.



The majority of the Snowmobile and Winter ATV Trails are open - HOWEVER, the portion of trail 119 south of trail 80 remains CLOSED.



PLEASE use caution when crossing swamps and lakes as some may not be frozen.



Some township ordinances allow for ATV/UTV use of the town roads and others do NOT allow it. It is the rider's responsibility to contact the township in which you plan to ride in and get the current rules pertaining to ATVs/UTVs and the town roads. Please contact the individual townships for their rules and regulations.

NO OFF TRAIL USE IS ALLOWED Please stay on the trails. Much of our trail system is on private land, and we appreciate the easements granted by our generous land owners. It only takes one person to have the entire trail system shut down.

Caution: Groomers and trail maintenance vehicles may be on the trails at any time.

All snowmobiles, ATVs and UTVs must be registered or licensed to ride on our trails.

It is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on. Please be careful, be respectful to other trail users, and ride safely.
