Chippewa County welcomes you to enjoy over 23 miles of ATV trail through the Chippewa County Forest. The hills, valleys and challenging terrain of the trail, were created by the action of glaciers, many thousands of years ago. This glacial topography is what makes this area ideal for ATV riding. You will be challenged with steep hills and valleys, as the trail winds past small lakes and beaver ponds, as well as, spectacular vistas and abundant wild life. In addition to trail, riders can enjoy approximately 20 miles of routes (mostly gravel) in the immediate vicinity of the trail. 

The Chippewa County ATV Trail is normally open to ATV riding from May 1st to November 15th of each year, except in case of emergency, when the County may close and gate the trail. Be cautious, as you never know what's around the next corner, or over the next hill, on this two-way trail!

The Chippewa County Forest is enjoyed by many different users.  Please share and protect our natural resources for future generations.(Code of Ethics)

Please observe all Chippewa County ATV Laws and stay on designated trails and routes.  Riders who cannot stay on designated trail and routes are not welcome here. Penalties for violations relating to ATV operation are between $100.00 and $500.00.
