Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the third largest state park in the United States, this area has around six miles of ATV trails that consists of moderately difficult terrain and runs along a creek up to Bird Pass.

The trail is well defined due to traffic from skiers, snowmobiles and ATVs. Grizzly bears, moose, bald eagles and wolves inhabit the area. The trail is usually accessible to motorized use late spring through early fall but exact dates vary.
