EAST
CENTRAL
One of the first
dry areas in the
spring, this area
offers a robust
network of trails
and surprising
remoteness.
Straddling either
side of Highway
35, between
Duluth and the
Twin Cities, the
network includes
long stretches
and shorter
loops, rivers and
several state
forests populated
with northern
hardwoods.

ARROWHEAD
Answer the call of Gitchie Gumee
on the Arrowhead trails. Several
trails give the full North Shore
experience with big elevation
changes, Lake Superior vistas and a
true northwoods experience. It's a
unique way to see the Arrowhead,
especially during peak color season.

Mountain ORV Trail.

NORTHWEST
In the land of Paul Bunyan,
this area isn't just made for
off-roading, it's where many
four-wheelers are made thanks to
Arctic Cat and Polaris. This is also
a place to explore tall-tree forests,
flat prairie lands and lakes.

the Mississippi River Valley in the
