It is my pleasure to bring you the May Events Calendar in Oconto County Wisconsin, thanks to Oconto County Economic Development Corporation and Samantha Routheau for compiling the list each month. It is my intent to make this a monthly blog to help all of my guests keep track of the events that they are most interested in.
May 1st Horse Trails Open! Oconto County has miles of equestrian trails in the Machickanee Forest, and May 1st ATV Trails Open! Unfortunately, the opening of ATV trails has been postponed to May 10th due to an uncooperative Mother Nature. I am happy to report we seem to be moving into spring finally with temperatures in the high 60’s last weekend in April. Oconto County has miles of great trails. Put your ATV on the trailer and hit the trails in the Nicolet National Forest. There are also overnight accommodations for you and your horse .http://www.spurofthemomentranch.org/about-the-ranch/.
