The Up North Riders ATV Club and Aitkin County work together for the development and improvement of ATV trails in the area, which includes building Puncheon bridges over wetland areas. As any regular trail user knows, trail upkeep and maintenance are the keys to an enjoyable trail experience. It doesn’t really matter if you are out on your ATV or fat-tire bike: rough, poorly marked trails are no fun and very likely will factor into your decision to return to that trail or not. The Northwoods ATV Trail system in Aitkin and Itasca Counties is no exception. The Aitkin County Land Department manages more than 220,000 acres of public land in Aitkin County. Building and maintaining the Northwoods ATV Trail system was viewed as a land management, as well as an economic development, tool. The thinking was, build a trail system (similar to the snowmobile enthusiasts 35 years ago) and the riders will use it, stay on the trail and use our lodging and dining establishments. Trail upkeep and maintenance are things we take seri- ATV’ERS WELCOME ON THE NORTH SHORE Great Trails • Great Accommodations • Great Times If you’re not here, you’re not ATVing!
