Based on considerable public input, the Iron County Forestry Department determined a need to update its outdoor recreational plan. With the public stating a desire to improve and maintain existing resources and develop new opportunities, the Iron County Outdoor Recreation Plan is being updated to include years 2010-2015.

An important element of this plan is the enhancement of the many nature-based outdoor recreational opportunities that Iron County has to offer. The County enjoys numerous resource-based assets, including rivers and streams, forests, waterfalls, trails and parks. Whether active or passive recreational activities, Iron County has much to offer. The Chambers of Commerce along with the Iron County Development Zone continue to promote Iron County as a recreational tourist destination.
