ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLES

The Chetek ATV Cruzers, an all-terrain vehicle club and its many volunteer members, completed putting the finishing touches on a beautiful trail called the Dallas Trail. This was made possible by some very generous, private landowners who allow us to cross on their land and the Barron County recreational officer who goes above and beyond for the ATV clubs of Barron County.

The Dallas Trail is said to be one of the nicest trails to ride by other Barron County ATV clubs. You can go from Chetek to Dallas for a nice, short ride for lunch and back. For a longer ride you can make the circle from Chetek to Dallas, Dallas to Barron, Barron to Cameron and Cameron back to Chetek. You also could go west of Barron on the Cattail State Trail to the county’s 40 acre intensive use area called “the playground”, where there is riding for all ages. Many of our supporting businesses and resorts are located along our trail. We have trailheads at the Chetek Lanes Event Center & Pizzeria and in the Chetek Industrial Park behind Parker Hannifin, where you can unload your machines and park a truck and trailer. Many streets and roads in the city of Chetek are well signed and open to ATV traffic by which you get to the trails.

We are currently working on a trail south of Chetek to Rusk County, which connects with more trails, and north from Cameron to Rusk County.

The trailhead of the Tuscobia State Trail, a 76-mile abandoned railroad bed, begins just north of Rice Lake and ends in Park Falls.
