Tucked away in the forested bluffs of Bayfield County, Valhalla Recreation Area has a set of trails that connect with the Tri-County Corridor and the Battle Axe Trail to create over 50 miles of trails worthy of an ATV tour. Here you’ll cut through the fabled Chequamegon National Forest, one of Northern Wisconsin’s hidden treasures. Be sure to bring extra clothing as temperatures can shift quickly due to Lake Superior’s sometimes blustery winds.
Connecting the Ashland to Superior, the aptly named Tri-County Corridor Trail passes through the serene landscapes of Ashland, Bayfield, and Douglas Counties. So, for those seeking more leisurely ATV tours, this corridor provides the perfect setting. This 62-mile path was once a railroad and has been resurfaced with pulverized limestone and is wide enough for multiple users.
