Off-Road enthusiasts from across the Badger State attended WOHVA’s Fall Pipeline Trail Day on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The day included gathering at the Lakewood/Laona Ranger District, Lakewood Offices, several hours of trail clean-up and a trail lunch provided by WOHVA. Volunteer trail activities like this go a long way towards keeping your trails open. Thanks to all these dedicated volunteers!
