Fun in the Forest ATV Ride

October 17-19, 2024

Fun in the Forest is an annual ATV ride on the renowned ATV forest trails in the Cable & Hayward area.  This great event supports children, families, and individuals in need in Bayfield, Sawyer, and Ashland counties with food, toys, and cash to help make their Holidays extra special! The Fun in the Forest Benefit Ride provides for those in need through charitable organizations such as the local Lions Club, local Toys-4-Tots, CARE, Operation Rudolph, BRICK Ministries Food Pantry, Ashland Fire Dept Toy Drive, Christmas for Kids, and more! There are hundreds of toys and pounds of food donated every year!

The official ride, a self-guided tour of the ATV trails in Ashland, Bayfield and Sawyer Counties, starts with an event kickoff Saturday morning in front of the Main Lodge at Lakewoods.  Riders that stop at nine or more of the participating restaurants, bars and businesses, and get their card stamped, will receive their very own commemorative t-shirt!  Riders are encourage to register early and ride Friday to enjoy more trails and get a head start on collecting Shirt Run stamps!

After hitting the trails, the fun keeps going Saturday night in Buck’s Bar at Lakewoods Lodge with a homestyle dinner and After Party.  There are Raffles and Drawings, Poker Run Drawings for CA$H, and LIVE Music.  It always turns into a weekend to remember.

This wonderful fundraising event has continued to grow year after year, all thanks to the wonderful donors, sponsors and participants.  As an extra incentive, the ATV Club with the largest representation will receive a special donation to a Holiday Charity of their choice in their local community. We’re spreading holiday cheer to everyone who participates!
