Wisconsinites love a little off-roading adventure. In the Badger State, you’ll find forested areas and wonderfully-rugged terrain suited perfectly for an ATV journey. If you’re ready to spend the day in nature and get a little muddy, check out these five awesome spots for ATV off-roading in the state.
Enjoy 118 miles of ATV and UTV trails in Iron County. Start your fun trip at the Schomberg Park trailhead. You’ll experience the beautifully forested Northwoods, lakes, and even some waterfalls. There are tons of great stops just off the trail for you to load up on food and water before heading back out for more engine revving.
Black River Falls is an ATV lover’s dream—specifically Jackson County. They host tons of ATV-thrill seekers throughout the year.

So watch out!
While the Chippewa County ATV Trail is only about a string of 20 miles—it is by far the most challenging. You’ll find tough inclines and challenging hills and valleys as you meander your way through. You can thank Mother Nature’s glaciers for such an exhilarating trip.

Life on the ATV is much better lived in Douglas County. The trail covers a network of over 100 miles during the summer months. Stop at Amnicon Falls State Park, Big Manitou Falls, and catch a waterfall at Pattison State Park. There are a couple of great food stops along the way for body refueling.
