Start Your Four Wheeling Adventure at Four Seasons Resort!

Thanks to a recent decision by the Town of Namakagon, guests staying at Four Seasons Resort can now ride their ATVs and UTVs right from your cabin rentals and connect to the off road trail system.

Bayfield County is home to over 180 miles of ATV/UTV trails – with connecting trails to hundreds of more miles of trails in neighboring Northern Wisconsin Counties. And you can now explore Bayfield County’s natural scenery on your ATV or UTV right from the front door of your cabin at Four Seasons Resort!

The ATV and UTV trails wind through the Chequamegon National Forest and its glacially sculpted features – some of the most remote and beautiful scenery in Wisconsin! Climb hills, cruise by picturesque lakes and ponds, experience breathtaking vistas and encounter wildlife.

Please be courteous to your fellow resort guests and our neighbors. Please avoid excess noise and exhaust as you are coming and going from the resort. Trails and roads under National Forest jurisdiction are open to UTVs 50 inches wide or less.

We know how much fun riding the trails can be and we ask you to help us keep the dirt, dust and mud under control in our homes. An additional cleaning fee of up to $500 will be applied if there is significant cleaning required to remove mud and dirt or damage is done to the cabins.

Ashland County Trails

Dead Horse Run ATV trail-The entire Dead Horse System is 56 miles. Most of the trail system is located on snowmobile trails with a tread about 14 feet wide. Much of the trail has a firm tread; however, some sections are located on wetter soils and pools of water may be present on the trail. In addition to bringing tools and perhaps fuel, one should consider a tow strap in your kit. This trail system has few opportunities for purchasing fuel. Trailheads-Highway 77 – A small trailhead is located on the east shore of Dead Horse Slough about 2 miles east of Clam Lake. From the intersections of State Highways 13 and 77, drive 11 miles to the trailhead, which is on the right (north) side of the highway.
