Detailed description

Emily - Outing is located in the Land O' Lakes State Forest of Minnesota. The trail mainly consists of large loops which connect to one another, allowing riders to enjoy approximately 56 miles of trails.

While there are many loops throughout this trail system, they all mainly branch off from the A / B Trail, which runs through both Emily & Outing, as well as connects to the moose river trail. The Moose River Trail can also be used to access the Moose River Connecting Trail, so riders can meet up with the Soo Line North without ever having to get off their machines.

Getting back to the Emily - Outing trail itself, the riding environment is very enjoyable. While the trail system is not overly taxing, it does offer many water holes for those looking to add some extra excitement. Most of the water holes (especially the larger ones) along this trail system have the option to be bypassed, which makes it great for groups with all levels of riders.

It is recommended that you start your ride in Outing MN. The Emily trailhead is not quite as big and will require more ditch riding to get to the better parts of the trail. Once you really get down the trail, however, you find yourself riding through the forest and surrounded by trees, ponds, and the sounds of rumbling ATV engines mixed beneath the quiet sounds of nature.
