Riders can explore the trails that climb through Nemadji State Forest. The southern trails wind across gently rolling upland, moving to steep stream valleys in the northeast. Tight curves and steep hills on the OHM single-track trails challenge even the most experienced riders. Trail connections to the Matthew Lourey State Trail and the Gandy Dancer Trail offer additional riding opportunities. The Nemadji State Forest is classified as LIMITED. Trails are provided by Pine County and maintained by the Straight Arrows Enduro Riders Motorcycle Club and Washington/Ramsey County Wheelers.
