Barron County ATV Intensive Use Area

Activities ATV Course

The Barron County ATV Playground/Intensive Use Area offers a variety of hills, figure eights, and an exclusive section for youth on smaller ATVs - all on a 40 acre lot.  The established trails are on a sandy terrain and there is 20 acres of woodland to take your ATV, find some mud, and just enjoy the shady, scenic landscape.  You may trailer your ATV or ride up on the Cattail Trail via the Barron County Trail-head, located in Turtle Lake.  The Trail-head offers restrooms and a paved loading/unloading zone, fitted with two differing height paved ramps.  You may access either the Cattail Trail, going east and west, or the Northern Trail, which will take you along Hwy. 63 to the north, with stops such as Rustic Road 67 (ATV route) and the Comstock Creamery, all the way to downtown Cumberland.  Watch the Discover Wisconsin Episode Featuring Barron County ATV Trails, "Four Wheels, Four Counties":
