According to Erik Rantala, forest administrator, the spring/summer/fall trails will officially close at 5 pm and will remain closed until weather permits after May 1, 2017.

The county's ATV ordinance prohibits the machines from operating on trails during closure.

The county's ATV system includes Parrish Highlands, Augustyn Springs, Pickerel/Pearson including Antigo, and the White Lake/Elton trails and are mostly on land owned and managed by Langlade County.
