The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is wrapping up work to safely allow ATVs and UTVs 65 inches or less on the Flambeau Motorized Trail starting next spring.
The Flambeau Motorized Trail system offers more than 70 miles of year round riding opportunities including ATVs and snowmobiles during the winter months in Price County.
"The completion of this project builds on the already tremendous motorized trail systems offered in Price County connecting users to the National Forest and the communities it serves," said Tim Vetter, Assistant Ranger in Recreation on the Medford-Park Fall Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. This project was jumpstarted in July 2011 with the Forest completing a Safety Audit identifying areas of the trail system not meeting agency standards for the larger width UTVs.
In the years following, through a partnership and trail grants with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Forest Service secured the money and resources necessary to work on the designs needed for the upgrades. By next spring, the trail system will meet the larger width UTV Trail Standards with the exception of one small segment (118-125, north of Forest Road 182) which will only remain open to motorized vehicles less than 50 inches due to terrain prohibiting factors. The larger width UTVs will have to detour along Forest Road 511 to avoid this short segment.
The Flambeau Motorized Trail is open from May 1 to March 14 each year. Weather and trail conditions may cause closures during this time period in order to protect the resource and maintain the integrity of the trail. The allowance of ATVs and UTVs 65 inches or less will occur after spring break up around May 1, 2016.

Upgrades to the Flambeau Motorized Trail
We've camped at Rock Dam and Snyder Park (both with Clark Co parks) both are right on the trail and allow ATV use in at least portions of the campgrounds. I've camped at Rock Dam since the early 80's, lots of fun memories there. Both can be reserved online... and I'd do it now for next year as they fill fast.
Like you, I grew up using the snowmobile trails and was amazed at how fun and popular using ATV's is... not to mention that it's more than replaced lost business from the fall off in snowmobiling. More dependable too.
