Off-Road-Vehicles/Off-Highway-Vehicles are authorized in the Miners Park by City Resolution. ORV/OHVs are restricted to the yellow trails marked on this map.

The Friends of the Miners Memorial Heritage Park, the Western U.P. Trail Association and the Western U.P SnowShakers – GRTA agreed in August to mark and sign trails, establish a park speed limit, and set motorized trail hours in the Miners Park for designated trails.

Also note the Landfill Fence Trail (in yellow) does not exist. The walking trail past the Old Cottonwood tree is not open to ORVs as the tree’s root system is very shallow and susceptible to damage.
