Venture Off Road
With thousands of well-maintained trails, northwest
Minnesota is an o;-roader’s playground.
W;;; ;;;;;;; ;;; ;;;;;; ;;; factories here, northwest Minnesota is a snowmobiling
and o;-roading hub. In the summer and
fall, ATV and U TV riders will find 10 trails
traversing the region, including several
in the Paul Bunyan, Land O’ Lakes and
Beltrami Island state forests, the Agassiz
Recreational Trail between Ulen and
Crookston, and the 170-mile Fourtown-Grygla Trail that mostly follows roads,
ditches and existing trails.
When snow hits the ground,
snowmobilers flock to this region to ride
the trails in Itasca State Park, along with
the Paul Bunyan, White Earth, Beltrami
Island and Badoura state forests. Ditches
are also popular places to ride and are
o;en groomed and marked by local
clubs. Enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the
three-day I-500 cross-country race,
which runs from Winnipeg, Canada, to
Willmar in February.

A new lodge, redesigned ski and snowboard hill, terrain park, and all-weather
trails are among the highlights of the
recently reopened Detroit Mountain
Recreation Area in Detroit Lakes. In
the winter, cross-country ski trails and a
tubing hill add to the snow-filled fun,
while in summer, the mountain offers
scenic views for hikers and purpose-built trails for mountain bikers.
The site is also home to the popular
Detroit Lakes Festival of Birds in May.
