FDL County Parks Director on ATV/UTV Use


ATV use has been a topic of conversation in the county this week, with a public hearing being held Wednesday on expanding ATV and UTV use during the winter on the Wild Goose State Trail. While that possibility is still being discussed, county officials are reminding ATV/UTV users that taking their equipment out to county parks and onto county trails any other time of the year is against the rules.

Fond du Lac County Director of Planning and Parks Sam Tobias says one of the places he noticed recently that rule had been broken was at Hobbs Woods. “I was disappointed to see deep ATV or UTV tracks along a couple of our main trails,” Tobias said. “Somebody had gone through after some extremely wet weather and made some deep, muddy tracks and those have set into the ground.” Tobias says that what people don’t realize is it takes a lot of labor and time to clean something like that up. He adds that its not legal to ATV on any of the county’s trails in the Spring, Summer or Fall – and that the only trail that currently allows winter ATV use is the Eisenbahn State Trail – which runs south of Eden.
