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.
The Emily Blind Lake ATV Grant-In-Aid (GIA) State Trail opened in September, 2021. The Over The Hills Gang ATV Club, in coordination with our trail sponsor Crow Wing County, maintains the Emily Blind Lake GIA ATV Trail. The Emily Blind Lake Trail is open from May 15th to October 31st for Class I and Class II ATVs, as well as Off Highway Motorcycles. This new multi-use ATV trail is a 16-mile trail connecting the counties of Crow Wing and Aitkin. The trail connects two major north-central Minnesota ATV Trail systems, the Emily Outing and Moose River ATV Trails, with the Aitkin County Northwoods Regional ATV Trail System, forming a continuous loop of over 70-miles of GIA Trail. Riders using trail amenities in the local communities of Emily, Palisade, Hill City and Outing will add new economic revenue for local businesses.
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 and Cuyuna Chambers 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.
Tips for Riding Your ATV Safely and Legally in Our Area
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.
