Southern Door County is home to the county’s first—and for now, only—official ATV routes, from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Door in the open air. Baileys Harbor has approved its first ATV routes, which will be rideable as early as winter 2018, and other communities have plans in the works for forging new ATV trails.
Please check the Winter Snow Report for updates on trail conditions.
Door County's ATV routes are paved roads that meander through four communities in Southern Door County: Nasewaupee, Gardner, Union, and Brussels. The newest extension, which was added in spring of 2017, makes the route almost 60 miles long.
The trail takes riders past gorgeous viewpoints along the shores of Green Bay and connects to communities where they can stop for food, drinks, shopping, and more. But the routes are also secluded enough that riders can enjoy peace, quiet, and solitude if they so choose.
Riders must be at least 16 years old to use the trails and possess a valid license and registration for an ATV. All users must follow all state laws on the road. Hardcopy trail maps can be picked up at the Door County Visitor Bureau in Sturgeon Bay or at most establishments along the route in Southern Door.
