It’s time to get a little mud on your tires with an ATV adventure in the Moosehead Lake Region!
Miles of ATV trails winding through the North Woods are waiting for you to explore!
Breathe in the fresh mountain air and take in the panoramic trailside views just before you duck into the tree-lined paths. Splash through the biggest mud puddles, then dry out with a picnic lunch along the way. You may even have a companion moose watching you from the brush.
Where to ride an ATV near Moosehead Lake
Moosehead Lake’s local ATV trail volunteers do an incredible job of maintaining well-marked trails throughout our region! You can ride from Greenville to The Forks, Rockwood, and even Kokadjo to get a real backcountry experience! The adventures are truly endless with ponds, moose sightings, and mountains to explore! The trail systems make it possible to go out for just a couple hours of fun or make it a full day expedition. Don’t own an ATV? No problem! Rent one from one of our local businesses such as Northwoods Outfitters or Moosehead Motorsports. We recommend setting up a guided ATV trip for the best riding experience!
