LAST NEWSLETTER 2021:  Where has the time gone?  This will be our last newsletter of 2021, although there is still a month to ride your ATV/UTV’s, the Oconto County Trail Systems closes at midnight on Sunday November 7th.  We have seen a large influx of new ATV/UTV rider’s in our area.  At this time the latest ATV/UTV registration has increased over 20,000 new machines and it is only October.  We have also seen an increase in our payed members, we now have a total of 204 payed members with a total membership over 350.  Our club had a very successful year with keeping up with the yearly maintenance on our trail system.  Thanks to all the members that make our club a success!!!

NEW ATV ROUTES:  We were successful in getting 2 more sections of County Highways open for ATV travel.  County Highway T in Doty from Markesan Lane to Eichoff Road is now open for ATV travel.  This will allow trail access for property owners on Markesan, Sugar Bear and Hwy T, it will also allow rider’s from Island Lake Road and Star Lake Road area’s to access the trail system going both North to Townsend and South to Chute Pond Area.  The other County Highway opened Is Hwy T in the Town of Doty from Bismarck to Highway W and Highway W to the Langlade County Line.  This will allow property owners along those 2 segments to access the ATV Trails and allow access to the River Forest Campground in Langlade County.  We are also working on getting a small portion of Hwy 55 in Langlade County opened from Hwy WW to Highway M in Langlade County to allow access to the Wolf River Trail in White Lake.

The fall color’s should be at their peak!!!   We will enjoy lunch at their event (lunch is on your own).  After lunch we will head back to the School House Bar to enjoy our annual Club Picnic.  We should be back to the Schoolhouse by 4:00 pm.

OCONTO COUNTY ATV TRAILS:  As the riding season gets shorter, there are still some great times to take a ride and enjoy the fall weather.  We see a big increase at this time of the year just to get in that last ride.  As a reminder the Oconto County ATV Trails close Sunday at midnight on November 7th (1st Sunday in November each year).
