Tri-County ATV Park/Trout Valley
Located just north of Faribault, the
25-acre Tri-County ATV Park is one
of southern Minnesota's few riding
areas for ATVs. Formerly a gravel pit,
it is open to class 1 and 2 ATVs. The
facility has a shelter and picnic area
that also doubles as an observation
area that overlooks abandoned gravel
pits. There is also a safety training
center on site that opened in 2007.

Southeast Minnesota ATV Trail
Elm Creek ATV Trail
Nestled in the southeast corner of the
state, the 16-mile Chatfield ATV Trail is
developed entirely on private land. This
region features many rolling hills and
the trails lead riders across the edges
of fields and pastures, along streams
and through the woods providing an
enjoyable ride for all ages. The site also
has a scramble area in an active sand
quarry for those looking for a challenge.
Rolling through the Mississippi
River bluffs are the Snake Creek
and Trout Valley OHV Trails.
The trails are highlighted with
towering slopes that overlook
the surrounding countryside.
Several lookouts are available
along the Snake Creek Trail
system. The Trout Valley area to
the south offers a section of trail
that spans parts of two counties,
and provides scenic overlooks
of the Trout, Whitewater, and
The Southeast ATV Trail covers nearly 13 miles
between Stockton and Altura, much of which is
private property, and is set among rolling hills and
heavily forested areas along Rollingstone Creek
and Garvin Brook. Nearby are the Snake Creek,
Trout Valley and Chatfield off-road trails. Also,
the Southeast ATV Trail is just eight miles west of
Whitewater and John A. Latsch state parks.
Located entirely on private land, the seven-mile Elm Creek ATV trail is the
southern most ATV trail in the state. Narrow, meandering woodland trails follow
the Elm Creek, crossing the creek several times. On the south side of the 52-acre
site is an open field practice track that adds to the fun riding experience for the
Trail access and parking is avail-
able off Highway 14 near Stockton
at trailer court.
