Tug Hill and the surrounding region offer an extensive collection of wilderness trails. Individuals and families will find the exploration and casual riding to be a great way to see the area’s natural beauty. Wet, muddy springs; warm, breezy summers; and crisp, fresh autumns make Lewis County a great place to ride! Hundreds of miles of trails and off-season roads offer a different terrain for every preference. Many businesses, including dining and lodging options located along the trails, cater to the ATV enthusiast. You can take short afternoon rides or have one of the local guides help you plan a weekend getaway. Area ATV Clubs and the Lewis County Department of Recreational Trails both play a very important role in the trail system care, safety and other trail needs. And please remember - be aware of noise levels and do not trespass or cause any damage to the trails. Area ATV dealers can help you find a part or accessory, if needed, to keep you on the trails.
