UNDATED — The Minnesota DNR is reminding ATV enthusiasts to stay out of the ditches in our area. State law restricts class 1 all-terrain vehicles in ditches in the agricultural zone from April 1st to August 1st.

The agricultural zone lies south of a line from Moorhead to Taylors Falls along Highways 10 and 95. It roughly covers the southern half of the state.

The restrictions do not apply to ATV’s licensed and used for farming or on grant-in-aid trails.

The DNR says “roadsides” provide nesting sites for birds and animals.

The DNR is also advising you to check ahead for closed forest roads and trails because they close some of the routes in the spring due to wet soil conditions.
