Where to Ride ATV in Washington State?
For the adventure and thrill seekers…..get on those ATV’s and ride! Loon Point Resort is located in the George Washington State Forest where you have hundreds of acres of forest roads and designated ATV trails to ride.
The Thistledew Trails are a 25-mile system consisting of a north and south loop located within George Washington State Forest with connections to forest roads. The trail passes through rolling hills of mature pine and aspen forest. Both loops are managed for ATV and horseback riding, so please watch for other riders. The Thistledew Trails are about 40 minutes north of the resort. We can provide you with a map and directions to get there. When you’re done riding for the day stop by the Junction Bar & Grill (just 5 miles away from the trail parking area) for a bite to eat – home of the famous Rodeo Burger!!!
This 18-mile trail in eastern Itasca County follows trails within the George Washington State Forest. Forested areas vary from densely wooded to harvested pine that open to wide views of the surrounding landscape. The trail travels by Hartley, Scooty and Wolf lakes and crosses the west fork of the Prairie River. The trail is provided by Itasca County and maintained by the Balsam Trail Blazers. The Little Moose Trail is 14 minutes south of Loon Point Resort.
**Most snowmobile trails are not designated for ATV or other off-highway vehicle use. Many snowmobile trails cross private property under a conditional use easement that is specific to winter travel, other snowmobile trails cross swampland that is not designated for ATV or off-highway vehicle use.
