This is a project to expand on the already existing Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area. Volunteer work will be needed in the summer of 2017 to improve core roads and mark new trails in the expansion.
The expansion is about 2,704 acres, which will total to 3,900 acres when combined with the existing park. There will be a link between the two sites, which will total about 75 miles of OHV trail.
