Free wheelin’ Labor Day weekend

On Labor Day weekend, Minnesota will host its first “Free Wheeling Weekend,” making it free to ride on state and grant-in-aid trails for two days, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials said.

On Saturday and Sunday, Minnesotans whose ATVs are registered only for private or agricultural use can enjoy riding the more than 3,400 miles of state and grant-in-aid trails without paying the additional registration fee to ride on public trails. Out-of-state riders can explore Minnesota trails, too, without the need for a nonresident trail pass.

Information on trail maps and where to ride is available.
