Trail Information & Maps
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.

More Riding Opportunities.
Did you know that both State Forest Recreational Area campgrounds of Greer Lake and Clint Converse are open to ingress/egress of ATV's with applied stipulations. This allows ATV's to ride in and out of the campground through a direct route to their campsite. This a one-year trial project which will be reviewed in September of 2020. ATV rules of operation will be posted at each campground, or contact the OTHG Club for more information.
Emily/Blind Lake Connector Trail.
Phase 1 is progressing as planned. This phase will bring the trail from the southern edge of the city of Emily over to County Road 106 and should be complete by the end of the 2020 riding season. The sections of Puncheon bridge that were built with volunteer help in November will be put in place in the marshy area just north and across Hwy 6 from the Lake Emily Resort. This will happen late February, early March. Our club President has been busy applying for grants from NUMEROUS public entities to secure the funds needed for the costs associated with building this new trail section that are not covered by our DNR GIA Grant money. We've also selected the local companies that will assist with the trail construction. New Age Tree Service, Emily Sand & Gravel, and Remer Ironworks will all be taking part in this project.
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.
