Wisconsin has miles upon miles of excellent dirt biking opportunity. From the twisting state trails to enormous recreation areas, you’d be hard-pressed not finding an incredible dirt biking spot in Wisconsin. Here are the five best trails.
Travel on over five miles of off-highway dirt biking trails in Douglas County. Trails open during the summer months and are an extremely popular spot for dirt bikers. This trail connects to an extensive network of trails that offer an additional 45 miles of off highway trails, however they travel into our neighboring state, Minnesota.
The Cheese Country Trail is one of the most highly-recommended off-highway motorcycling trails in the state. The 47-mile trail extends south and east through Iowa, Lafayette, and Green counties. Be prepared for one of the most beautiful rides of your life. Rolling hills, heavily forested woods, stately bluffs—Cheese Country Trail is truly the mecca of dirt bike bliss.
Pecatonica State Trail shaped an old railroad grade through some of Wisconsin’s most beautiful areas. This 10-mile twisting trail will take you from one of our state’s oldest communities to our former capital city. You’ll see the breathtaking Pecatonica River, farmland, historic buildings, and much more!
Bong State Recreational Area in Kenosha County is the perfect 10-mile trail for dirt bikers. With three dirt loops snaking throughout prairies and wetlands, you’ll love the adventure of the twists and turns.
Meander through Clark County on the Knobby Ridge Trail. There is over 16 miles of looped trail system within beautiful Clark County Forrest. Passes must be purchased before riding on the Knobby Ridge dirt bike trail and the best part is, the trail system is only used for motorcycle type vehicles—no ATV/UTVs allowed!
