EISENBAHN TRAIL OPENING INFORMATION

FEB 20 2024

The Eisenbahn Trail is currently CLOSED

in both Washington and Fond du Lac counties since the temps are predicted to be above 28 degrees for the next week. . 



In Washington County
You must call the official trail hotline at (262) 277-1503. 
(THE HOTLINE IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL ISSUES AND WILL BE BACK IN SERVICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE)
You can also LIKE "ATV Eisenbahn State Trail" on Facebook for the latest openings and closings. The beauty here is, it will notify you when it officially opens and closed.

In Fond Du Lac County
You must call the official trail hotline at (920) 929-6840. 
In Fond du Lac County, you will notice these NO ATV signs at many road crossings. Rest assured, once the ground is frozen, and the trail has been declared open, and the temp is below 29 for the entire day, the trail is open for ATV/UTV use even though the signs remain in place.


ROAD ROUTE INFORMATION


If you are wondering about all the new road routes with all the new signs being posted, you may have a lot of questions on what is open and legal to ride on, and what is not.

WASHINGTON COUNTY


All town roads and county highways in a particular township can be open once posted. Currently the county highway connectors only are posted. Those signs will come down when the new signs are put in place. This will not happen to summer of 2024 so please stick to the connector routes only. For example, county highway B in West Bend, is posted only from Friendly Drive to Lighthouse Lane which are both town roads. You can not ride on any other section of highway D through Barton township until the signs are posted to let vehicle traffic aware that atv's will be sharing the road. The state highway connectors will remain as is. These means only small sections of state highway will allow atv/utv use to get from one town road to another town road only, not the whole state highway in any township.


FOND DU LAC, SHEBOYGAN COUNTY


  All town roads in a particular township can be open once posted. This is only the town roads, not the county roads ( letters), state highways (numbers)or city or village roads. The county highways and state highways will have connector sections that will permit atv/utv use from one town road to another. Please become familiar with the township roads in the town you want to ride in and their municipal boundary. It is a very involved process and fortunately there is a website that has all the needed information. Go to or click   www.KettleTrails.com for all the much needed information. Polaris Ride Command is as up to date for our area and is still the best resource we have for road openings.
