Open House for OHV Trail System Planning

Open House Scheduled for OHV Trail System Planning
Efforts will create extensive public recreation opportunities

Cedar City, Utah—On Thursday, March 17 Iron County and interagency land managers will host an open house to gather public input for proposed Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail routes from 6-8pm at the Heritage Festival Center (Room #7) in Cedar City, Utah. There will be a formal presentation explaining the time frame and primary goals of the OHV trail system at 6:30.

This open house encourages the public to view proposed plans and maps of approximately 500 miles of OHV trail networking options between the Paiute and Markagunt trail systems. It will also start long term planning efforts to identify new trail opportunities throughout all of Iron County over the next few years.

Outdoor Recreation Planner Dave Jacobson said he’s committed to helping create more quality, public recreation opportunities in southwest Utah. “The trail committee and multi-agency partnership is instrumental in developing a transportation plan for recreationalists that want to expand their OHV opportunities,” said Jacobson. “We hope the public will attend and support our open house on March 17.”

Agencies sponsoring this event include the Iron County, Utah State Parks, the Bureau of Land Management, Dixie National Forest, local municipalities, and the Trail Blazers All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Club of Cedar City.
For additional information contact Dave Jacobson, BLM (435) 865-3010, Mike Worthin, Iron County (435) 865-5357, and Nick Glidden, USFS (435) 865-3747.
