area. Parking and access also available at McCormick Lake day-use area.
It's a great place for early spring riding, as the soil drains quickly. Terrain
rolls gently, and trails on the forest's southern side meander along Willow
River. Forest roads are also open to off-road vehicles, as marked.
Class 1 ATVs and off-road motorcycles,
though the section of the Matthew Lourey
Trail within this forest accommodates Class
II ATVs. This area of connecting trails has
fun names like Redhorse Trail, Grouse Trail
and Ramblee Trail. They skirt the Kettle
River as it enters the St. Croix, as well as
Redhorse Creek. The wide, gentle curves are
especially nice for new riders. Forest roads,
when marked, are also open to ATV use.
