First Spring Ride

8 posts in this topic

Well the snow is finally melting a little. Starting to get jazzed about a little riding other than on the lake.

I am out of Elk River area and have been through a few of the closer places. Red Top, Pine City. But any other tips or places that you would reccomend.

Anyone looking to set a ride date and head out here when we can. Let me know. --Ride on

I was hoping to get to the north shore to ride the Moose walk and Red Dot last year but the fuel prices kept me home.

If the prices stay down, I'll try to get up there this summer. Take note of the ATV parade thread at the top of the forums. It's more people than I care to ride with in the same location though.

Nemadji is one of my fav's. I usually get there once a year.

Keep an eye on the forums here. I try to get a ride set up every year.

Nemadji is my all around favorite. Especially if you get off the main trails and find the narrow technical trails that go through the woods. We seldom see anybody else when we ride those. There's a ton of trails that hardly get used. Just gotta look for em. All legal to ride on too.

Agreed. many tighter, more techinical trails in Nemadji that are marked for ATV use. Gotta be careful not to tread onto the OHM trails though.

There are several trails that are now open to Class 2 ATVs. There some in Nemadji, I think Red Top.

The DNR has all of their trails maps updated with trails where Class 2 machines are permitted.

Does Nemadji get busy. How far from the city do you think that is?

There have been days I encountered 20 other machines in Nemadji but it's never been an issue.

The trail head in the middle of Nemadji is maybe 3-4 miles from Nickerson tops. One trail comes out within a couple miles of Duquette if you need fuel of a bite to eat.
