It’s the responsibility of all ATV operators to make the sport a safe one. Take an ATV Safety Course.
ny snowmobile trail posted with both ATV and Snowmobile signs are open to ATV's in the winter. Also, ATV trail riding is allowed only as long as the average daily temperature is less than 30 degrees, due to the fact that ATV's have the potential to do much greater damage to the trails during warming conditions. We must have a spirit of cooperation if we are to continue to develop a multi-use trail system for our visitors. Iron County trails are closed for a few weeks during the spring breakup period. During this time, spring trail maintenance takes place.
