Effective Monday, March 12th, at 8:00am all Snowmobile trails and ATV trails located on both Public and Private lands will be closed for the winter riding season. Summer ATV/UTV Trails are tentatively scheduled to reopen on May 1st, 2018.
Trails maintained by the Neillsville/Granton Trail Busters are closed effective immediately.
All other Clark County ATV & Snowmobile Trails located on both Public and Private lands will remain open for designated use at this time. Warmer weather is expected a few days this week so riders are asked to ride responsible or limit use during these warm spells. Doing so will help preserve the snow base that is present and prolong the riding season for further enjoyment. Early season riding conditions may still be present in some locations so please use caution. Off trail activity was also observed in several locations over the weekend. Riders please respect the landowners who allow trail use on their property and stay on the designated trail.
Please note that UTV’s are not allowed on the Clark County ATV Trail system during the winter months (November 1- May 14).
Clark County trails are subject to periodic closure; for updates on recent closures and/or openings please contact the Forestry and Parks Department at 715-743-5140

Effective Midnight January 16, 2017 Clark County ATV & Snowmobile Trails located on both Public and Private lands will be closed for both ATV & Snowmobile traffic. By closing the trails during the upcoming warm weather we hope to preserve the well-established base which is currently present on our trail system allowing for a quicker reopening after the incoming weather passes.
