Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest trail closures

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest’s all-terrain vehicle (ATV), horse and bicycle trails are closed and will remain closed until further notice.

During this time period, the use of wheeled motorized vehicles, mountain bikes, horses or other pack or saddle animals is prohibited on National Forest System trails.

The temporary closure of trails during spring break-up will reduce rutting and erosion of trails which often occurs when the soil is saturated. Protecting recreation trails during this time period reduces the likelihood of trail closures during the high-use season to repair damaged segments.

ATV routes and other trails designated by towns under state law are not affected by this closure. Trail users should check local regulations for trails they plan to use.

ATV, horse and mountain bike enthusiasts are encouraged to do their part in helping to protect everyone’s recreation opportunities by honoring this closure

Trail conditions will be assessed the week of April 21, but the actual opening of trails across the forest will vary based on local conditions.

To check the status of recreational trails in your area, visit www.fs.usda.gov/cnnf, follow the CNNF on Twitter at twitter.com/CNNF002, or call a local district office.
