Trail Conditions

Trail status and conditions: (updated June 21, 2019) 

Bayfield County ATV/UTV trails are open; however, there is a closure on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest for some repairs on roads that were affected by flooding. The map of the closures also includes the location of the Rainbow Gathering, which is a large group event happening in the Delta area over the next few weeks.

Re-routes are well-marked on the trail system and include:

  • Trail 33 from the intersection of Trail 31 to the Ridgetop Trail - use Trail 31 instead
  • Trail 3 north of Iron River - reroute is marked on site

Please tread lightly and report any downed trees or other issues as soon as possible to the Bayfield County Forestry & Parks Department at (715) 373-6114.  

As always, riders should use caution when out on the trails.  Please stay on the designated trails and routes and follow the trail signs. Be aware that there may be grooming equipment on the trails.
