DOTY UPDATE: We have received the DOT approved permit to install a culvert on the North side of Highway 64 to make the crossing from the trail across Highway 64 less of an incline. Also we will be putting up the gate on the new fence we installed on the O’Briens property.

LAKEWOOD UPDATE: Loren Nelson reported that he received a phone call from the Lakewood Town Clerk in regards to ATV’s riding town County Highway F. Highway F is not open for ATV traffic.

RIVERVIEW UPDATE: We will be picking up a new town ordinance from Riverview with all the town roads that are open for ATV travel. We will then publish all Town Roads in Lakewood, Riverview & Doty that are open for ATV travel on our website.
