DNR question of the week (06/06/2004)
Q: Finding a place to ride an ATV or other OHV machine takes a little research. And, Minnesota offers different riding opportunities. Are there different levels of riding opportunities - from novice to adventurous? And, how can riders find the trail that fits their needs?

A: Minnesota is using the standard ski hill symbols to identify level of difficulty. The symbols are: green circle - easy, blue square - moderate, and black diamond - technical or advanced. Most public OHV trails are green with some blue levels available. The Red Dot and Spider Lake systems are two sites that have some blue level trails. At this point, the only public riding area with black diamond level opportunities is the Iron Range Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Area in Gilbert. It is important for riders to know their abilities and know their machines. Most of these trails do not provide alternative routes - once the course is started, it must be finished. The more advance trails are generally one-way as well.

- Ron Potter, DNR OHV coordinator
