Our March Trail Revamp was a big success!  Over the weekend, 200 volunteers came together and worked on our OHV trail system.


Volunteers installed guard railing, cut brush away from trails, removed downed trees, installed signs, laid mulch, moved tons of rock onto trails and collected garbage from trails and off trail areas.




Our volunteers gave their time and physical effort so that you can continue to enjoy this beautiful resource.  We ask that you respect the work completed by continuing their effort.  Pick up trash as you find it on the trail system. Stay on designated trails. Control wheel spin and try to refrain from damaging barriers.

A HUGE Thank You!  To all of our volunteers who worked so hard!  We appreciate all that you give and do!
