OHV Trails
The 11.7 mile Chengwatana State Forest OHV Trail
system is popular for its interesting collection of loops
and spurs associated with the Willard Munger State
Trail that bisects the main trail area in the forest.
Located where the Kettle River and St. Croix River
merge on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin,
trail users can look forward to rolling terrain, forested
uplands and marsh areas.
Beginning in Danbury, Wisconsin, and cutting through a portion of Minnesota before
driving back into Wisconsin, the Gandy Dancer Trail is open to ATVs, OHMs and ORVs.
(Anything over 900 pounds is only allowed on the section between the East Arm Road
in the St. Croix State Forest, northward to the Harlis Forest Road in the Nemadji State
Forest.) The 31-mile trail, built on an abandoned railroad grade, connects to the St. Croix
State Forest OHV Trails and Nemadji State Forest OHV Trails. The forest-covered trail is
a popular destination for a wide variety of riders.
The General C.C. Andrews State Forest
trail system is located near Interstate 35
between the towns of Sturgeon Lake and
Willow River. At nearly 40 miles long,
the trail is covered with jack and red pine
along with stands of birch, aspen and oak.
Just a short drive from the Twin Cities,
the scenic trail tracks partly along the
Willow River and next to the banks of
Dago Lake.
Some of the most varied and interesting
motorized trail riding anywhere can be found in
the Fond du Lac State Forest. The 64,000-acre
forest area is a complex of wetlands and forest,
complemented by several large shallow wild rice
lakes, extensive marsh areas and wooded swamp.
Trails are located in the northern and southern
areas of the forest, with challenging loops
connected via forest roads.
