Officials with the City of Superior have opened the newly-designated year-round ATV/UTV route that runs through the metro; the trail has been in the works for some time and was finally approved by the City Council at their November 7 meeting.  The route allows ATV and UTV users a path through the metro utilizing already existing roads and alleys.

The city requests that users familiarize themselves with the permitted routes before using them.  A detailed map is available on the cities website - available by clicking here.

A recent change to Wisconsin State Law allowed local municipalities the ability to create designated routes such as the one that runs through Superior.  That law reads:

A city, village, or town may enact an ordinance to authorize the operation of all-terrain vehicles and utility terrain vehicles on a highway that is not part of the national system of interstate and defense highways, that has a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less, and that is located within the territorial boundaries of the city, village, or town regardless of whether the city, village, or town has jurisdiction over the highway”. Wis. Stat. s. 23.33(11)(am)4

 

While the year-round ATV/UTV trail is now open for riders, the winter trails are not being opened at this time; their use will be announced separately  when the conditions become favorable for them.
