ATVs and off-highway motorcycles may be driven on County forest roads, unless posted closed. For example, the forest road in Section 33, T46N, R18W, which meanders northwesterly from County Line Road for approximately three miles, is a signed road and NOT OPEN to any off-road motorized vehicle.
In 2017, the Carlton County Board of Commissioners passed Ordinance 33, which permits ATV use on the extreme right-hand side of any county-managed road, flowing with traffic. This Ordinance DOES NOT APPLY to any State Highway or Township road. Check Ordinance 33 here: <insert link>
Carlton County regulations conform to the MN DNR regulations for off-highway vehicles. Conservation officers, deputy sheriffs, police officers, and state troopers, all enforce off-highway vehicle rules.
ATV cross-country travel is prohibited. (Please see hunting/trapping exceptions at the DNR webpage).
