Agassiz Recreational Trails
Blue Ox ATV Trail
Conservation ATV Trails
Built on a former railroad grade, the Agassiz Recreational Trail, provides ATV
enthusiasts with an easy, scenic 52-mile ride that includes impressive river
crossings. This multi-use trail parallels state highways 32 and 102 between Ulen
and Crookston, passing through the towns of Twin Valley and Fertile along the
way, where support facilities for users can be found.
The Blue Ox ATV Trail, developed on an abandoned railroad grade with a narrow
top, slices a 64-mile northeasterly swath from near Funkley to International Falls,
passing through Little Fork, Big Falls and Northome. Riders will enjoy stretches
of upland aspen stands and black spruce swamps as well as impressive scenic
crossings over the Little Fork and Big Fork rivers.
Several state Wildlife Management
Areas located just west of Beltrami
Island State Forest provide plenty of
riding opportunities on segmented ATV
trails. The Fourtown-Grygla Grant-In-
Aid trails connect to the Con-Con lands.
The majority of the trails follow existing
trails, county and township roads or ditch
banks. County ordinances allow ATVs to
operate on the far right side of the travel
lane; highway licensed vehicles share the
route so travel with caution.
Beltrami Island State Forest is Minnesota's second largest state forest consisting of
stands of Norway pine, aspen, jack pine, birch, elm, ash and oak. For motor vehicles, it is
classified as "managed," meaning highway licensed vehicles are allowed on roads/routes
unless posted; ATVs, ORVs and OHMs are allowed on roads, routes and designated
trails; and ATV travel off routes, roads and designated trails is prohibited except when
hunter/trapper exceptions applies.
