Baileys Harbor would become the first Door County mainland town north of Sturgeon Bay’s bridges to have an ATV trail system if approved by the town and county boards in the coming weeks. Supporters of establishing the trails are fine tuning the details on related ordinances and permissions before it goes to the county board after the town board showed its support for the project. Baileys Harbor resident Joe Swanson has helped spearhead the efforts and hopes this is the beginning of forming a countywide ATV trail network.
Swanson has a goal of July 1 for the Baileys Harbor ATV trail system to be established. Several southern Door County communities and Washington Island already have their own ATV routes.
