There are many places to ride all-terrain vehicles in the Upper Midwest but the center of the ATV universe is the Black River Falls area.

Recently voted the Best Place to go Four Wheeling by the 2019 La Crosse Tribune Best of the Best reader’s choice awards.

What makes this area known for having some of the best ATV/UTV and single-track motorcycle trails? ATVers can ride more than 100 miles through Jackson County and an additional 135 miles through neighboring Clark County.

The trails take you through rolling landscapes and over pristine streams with natural beauty truly unique in the Midwest. Riders coming to the Black River Falls area will find 335,000 acres of public forest, municipal ordinances favorable to motorized trail riding, and hundreds of miles of designated trails – everything the modern rider demands!

Businesses welcome ATV riders, who have many options for weekend stays. There are more than 500 hotel rooms in Black River Falls and other lodging options including campgrounds, lodges, resorts and bed and breakfasts.

When you’re not on the trails, enjoy great local taverns, restaurants, unique shopping, breweries, wineries and a casino. There is also a trail extension that connects with many Black River Falls businesses, including trail access to four of the motels.

ATV trail passes are $35.00.
