Nemadji State Forest

Nemadji State Forest Riders

The Straight Arrows build, maintain and sign approximately 45 miles of public trails in the Nemadji State Forest, approximately 27 miles of which are singletrack trails for motorcycles only. An additional 5 miles of public OHM trail was added in Douglas County, WI in 2010.

This is SAER’s ongoing effort to sponsor a public riding area within a reasonable driving distance from the Twin Cities. This is a joint effort between the MN DNR, the Douglas County Forestry office, the Washington/Ramsey County Wheelers (WRCW) ATV Club and SAER. WRCW and SAER receive Grant-in-Aid funding from the DNR for their efforts.

Directions to the Nemadji OHM/ATV Trails: The Nemadji State Forest is about 30 miles south of Duluth, MN.
