Minnesota- Each State Park Trail system is open to different when it comes to off-highway vehicles. The three levels are closed, limited and managed. Off-highway vehicles include any ATVs, motorcycles or other off-road vehicles. In our region, most parks are managed meaning trails are open to all OHVs unless otherwise posted. A few parks in our area are mixed classifications, so riders should always check what is allowed before heading out.
