Minnesota- The Minnesota DNR is currently in the process of its statewide strategic plan. One of their goals is to enhance the ATV program and address the growing demand for ATV opportunities, while also considering long-term environmental impacts. Riders have several opportunities to weigh in on the future of their sport. There is currently a survey available online as well as several discussion platforms to leave ideas.
Gogebic County, MI- Trail 2 which connects the U.P. east to west has been closed. The new owners of Snow river Mountain Resort, previously known as Big Snow, alerted the Gogebic Range Trail Authority and DNR that they will be pulling their land-use permits permanently. A large detour through Vilas County, WI will now be the only way to access the western U.P., including the towns of Bessemer and Ironwood.
