Pembina Gorge State Recreation Area

Explore the Pembina Gorge on your ATV or dirt bike. The trail head is located 1 mile north, 1 mile west, and ¼ mile north of the beautiful Walhalla Country Club.

While designed for the use of OHVs it is also open to hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders.

The trail is made possible through the North Dakota Park and Recreation Department’s partnerships with state agency and private landowners. An additional 12-mile loop is being planned as well as more traditional, non-motorized trail opportunities.

The Tetrault Woods State Forest, located south of Walhalla, is undergoing trail enhancements which will provide an unforgettable walk through the woods.
