Forest County



The Nicolet State Trail welcomes ATVs and UTVs. Just remember to respect the bordering land owners and STAY ON THE TRAIL. There are trail heads for parking and loading/unloading in Wabeno, Laona and off County Hwy G in Cavour. Access to the trail is also available at road crossings. When riding, if a road crossing is not a marked ATV route, it is illegal to ride on. ATVs are allowed during winter months but the trail is an active snowmobile trail.  If riding an ATV in the winter one must stay on the Nicolet State Trail. Snowmobile trails leading of the corridor are not open to ATV's.  The only trail open for ATVs leading off the NST is north of Hwy T in Blackwell.  


The Nicolet State Trail is owned by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and managed by the Forest County Forestry & Parks Department.
