Burnett County Summer ATV/UTV Information
Our summer ATV/UTV riding season will begin this Friday, May 25th
At that time, all trails will open except a portion of Trail 8 along Hwy 77. This trail will be closed from the Trail 41/Trail 8 intersection east to Bear Lake Road until further notice due to road construction.
Things to remind riders:
It is illegal to ride your ATV/UTV on the Gandy Dancer Trail in Burnett County south of highway 77 at any time.
***THE BRIDGE OVER THE ST. CROIX RIVER ON THE GANDY DANCER TRAIL WILL REMAIN CLOSED TO VEHICLES OVER 1,000 LBS. GVW UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
On July 1st, 2011, over 76,000 acres in Burnett County were severely damaged in a wind storm resulting in the loss of hundreds of thousands of trees. There continues to be numerous loggers clearing trees from not only our county forest, but also from state land and private lands, sometimes crossing or using our trails with their equipment.
Please continue to watch for new dead falls and branches throughout the 2012-2013 riding seasons.
If they need any maps, lodging information, or any other information, please contact Burnett County Tourism at 1-800-788-3164
