The Bigfork - Balsam Connection trail continues to be improved. Stumps removed, holes filled, and safety concerns addressed.
Who We Are
Wilderness Wheelers is an ATV club based in Bigfork, Minnesota. Consider joining us to help develop and maintain ATV trails in our area. You can become involved by helping build boardwalks, clearing trails and in other ways.
Trail Conditions and Alerts: Bigfork – Balsam Connection Trail is Open - Watch for two way traffic on narrow parts of Trail.
Trail Conditions: The B-B trail is in very good condition! Independence Day weekend will see lots of traffic so please stay safe out there! Slower driving, especially on corners and narrow parts of the trail will make for more enjoyable riding for all users. Recommended maximum speeds for all gravel roads is 35mph and for OHV trail sections 25mph.
Maintenance work continues on the trail during normal weekdays. Grading, mowing, boardwalk maintenance and gravel restoration will continue throughout the ATV season. Please watch for these activities as you ride the trail.

Reminder: While riding on township and county roads the law requires us to stay to the far right hand side while using these corridors and obey all other traffic regulations. We also ask you to avoid ditch riding on this trail as we have to fix any damage caused by ATV use along our Bigfork to Balsam Trail corridor. Stay on the Trail! Please stay off State Highway 38.
Please check back regularly for current riding conditions throughout the riding season. Updated: 7/5/2019
