The Tamaracks Off-Highway Motorcycle Trail


The Tamaracks OHM trail system is a single-track trail system that offers 22 miles of different levels of rider experience. The Green Loop is a beginner to family friendly rider loop that is regularly maintained. The Blue Loop steps up the challenge with more features and a tighter trail tread. The Black Loop is designed for the experienced rider, slow and technical with rocks and log features just for fun!

The main Park and Ride trailhead now features a loading ramp and an open-air pavilion. The trail is adjacent to Tamarack Springs Campground. The campground also accepts online reservations.

This single-track trail system is for both limited use (dirt bikes) and Dual Sport motorcycles. To ride on this trail system a Wisconsin DNR OHM Permit is required. Visit the DNR’s website for more information.
