The picturesque views and comfortable temperatures make Northern Minnesota the perfect summer ATV destination. After an unprecedented and stressful year, many of us are craving a sense of escape and relaxation, and ATVs can help you get there. Along the way, you may encounter all types of wildlife as there are many different forest types and wildlife habitats throughout the county.
Koochiching County allows off-road vehicle travel on county roads. The Blue Ox State Trail runs from the northeast corner of Koochiching County to the southwest corner, providing access to miles of trails and scenic forestry roads. ATV rides in Koochiching County can include great places to stop, from very nice county parks along the winding Big Fork River to a historic artesian well that has been flowing steadily since 1914. The “Flowing Well” was originally tapped to ice skid roads aiding lumberjacks in hauling out giant loads of huge white pine in the winter. There are also ATV friendly communities throughout the county where you will be able to get a bite to eat or fill your tank.
