Calling all you who enjoy revving your ATV engines and sending mud flying on twisting forest trails, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is an extensive playground of varying terrain just waiting for you to ride and roost over. 

Thrillseekers can find ATV trails throughout the entire Upper Peninsula, each offering unique scenery and adventure. Extend your tour for several days with our expansive miles of designated ATV trails from spring through fall. Some are listed below. But wait, there’s more! Michigan’s state and national forests also offer thousands of miles of trails. There are trails near top attractions. Trails right outside your lodging doors. Trails you can hit at sunrise from your campground. Trails that let you drive up to restaurants, breweries and bars! Just check individual forest maps for restricted areas before planning your ride. Here’s what you can expect in each region. 

Western U.P.

Over 700 miles of ATV adventure awaits, including several trails along the beautiful, serene Lake Superior landscape, steep land bridges and towering trestles.
