Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Paul Bunyan State Forest offers over 100+ miles of single track motorcycle trails that from many interconnecting loops. The trails consist of mostly loamy dirt with some sandy sections plus some rocky, rugged and rutted single track.

The forest is very hilly with numerous shallow ponds, which gives the trails a lot of natural flow and light to moderate elevation changes. The area is home to abundant wildlife that ranges from deer, moose, owls, ducks and bear.

Camping is permitted at the staging areas but there are no services so come prepared. Stompin Grounds Lodge and Camping is just a few miles south of the main staging area, which features full hookups, restrooms, hot showers, restaurant and bar plus direct trail access.
