Burnett County Frozen Ground System Update


We do not have enough snow cover to open our snow trails, and some swamps are not yet frozen. However, the MAJORITY of the Frozen Ground ATV Trail System is open, with the exception of trail 130 and the portion of trail 151 running from trail 45 to 118 due to swamplands.

Frozen Ground Trails are marked with GREEN blazers and are shown on the back of the snowmobile map. You may also find the map under "Trail Rules, Maps and Licensing Information" on our website. Only registered machines meeting the state definition of an ATV or UTV are allowed on this trail system.

All ATVs and UTVs must display either a Wisconsin registration or an ATV trail pass to ride on our trails. Only machines meeting the state definition of an ATV/UTV are allowed on these trails. Please follow this link for the state definitions and registration/pass information.

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 follow this link for contact information for 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: Trail maintenance vehicles may be on the trails at any time. Also please watch for signage warning of logging activity. Trucks may be crossing 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.
