Over The Hills Gang
Trails: The Emily/Outing ATV Grant-In-Aid State Trail opened in June 2014. The Over The Hills Gang ATV Club, in coordination with our trail sponsor Cass County, maintains the Emily/Outing GIA ATV Trail. The Emily/Outing Trail is open from May 1st to October 31st for both Class I and Class II ATVs. This ATV Trail system is 56 miles in length which includes the Moose River Trails. The trail system begins in Emily, MN located on the southern part of the trail, travels through Outing, MN and further north to the Moose River Trail loops which are located 6 miles north of Outing. Funds to maintain these trails are provided by the MN Trail Assistance Program (GIA), through annual grants, fundraising efforts by Over The Hills Gang ATV Club and donations from the Emily/Outing Chamber of Commerce, Club members and ATV enthusiasts.
The ATV trail system has two main routes designated as the "A" and "B" trails, and three main loops known as the Plantation, Wren, and Cedar Lake Loops of the Moose River Trails.
More Trail Closures: The club is working hard to reopen all trail closure areas. As of July 7, we have spent $6600 on fill, $500 on gates, $3150 on lumber, $3700 on fuel and equipment, and 280 volunteer labor hours. Wet weather has complicated progress. Logging activity has resulted in additional closures on the B trail. We also have received reports on needed repairs on the Moose River Trail loops and southern end of B trail. We encourage everyone to check the status of trail closures before you ride. Volunteer days are posted on our club Facebook site
Before you head out, always check the trail status of Minnesota ATV trails and State Forest Roads on the MN DNR website at this link: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/closures.html

MN DNR Volunteer Trail Ambassadors: The Emily/Outing GIA ATV State Trail is monitored by MN DNR Volunteer Trail Ambassadors.

Stop and say hello and a thank you to a Volunteer Trail Ambassador!
Trail Maps: The Over The Hills Gang ATV Club typically publishes a new trail map annually which can be found at most local Emily/Outing businesses, at informational kiosks, or as a printable PDF file here on our site. Small changes as directed by our trail sponsor Cass County, or by the MN Department of Natural Resources requires us to drop or add trail sections. Please check the year on the map for the most up-to-date version.
