Burnett County Trail Update, All Open!
From Burnett County:
Burnett County has 4-6 inches of fresh snow! All Snowmobile and ATV trails are now open! Please be patient with our groomers, they are getting to the trails as quickly as they can.
NO OFF TRAIL USE IS ALLOWED
Remember that it is illegal to ride your ATV/UTV on the Gandy Dancer Trail in Burnett County south of highway 77 at any time.
Please use caution over lakes and swamps as some may have open water! For more information on where you can legally ride, follow this link to page 8.
Some township ordinances allow for ATV/UTV use of the town roads during the winter months, and others do NOT allow it. It is the rider’s responsibility to contact the township in which you plan to ride in and get the current rules pertaining to ATVs/UTVs and the town roads. Please contact the individual townships for their rules and regulations.
It is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on. Please be careful, be respectful to other trail users, and ride safely.
***THE BRIDGE OVER THE ST. CROIX RIVER ON THE GANDY DANCER TRAIL WILL REMAIN CLOSED TO VEHICLES OVER 5,000 LBS. GVW UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
PLEASE NOTE: On July 1st, 2011, over 76,000 acres in Burnett County were severely damaged in a wind storm resulting in the loss of hundreds of thousands of trees. There continues to be numerous loggers clearing trees from not only our county forest, but also from state land and private lands, sometimes crossing or using our trails with their equipment.
Please continue to watch for new dead falls and branches throughout the 2012-2013 riding seasons.
