Snowmobile Season Is Here, So Are The Volunteers
December is around the corner and the snow is starting to fall; meaning snowmobile lovers across the state are firing up their rigs and preparing the upcoming season.
Rather than preparing their personal set ups, some OHV enthusiasts are helping prep the trails that are beloved by so many.
Members of the Utah Snowmobile Association and Davis County Snowmobile Club – along with some independent volunteers and State Park and Forrest Service employees – spent a hard day at work pounding posts and orange markers into the ground.
These posts and markers can be seen along the Mud Creek Trail and the Coop Creek Trail at the Strawberry Snowmobile Complex.
These orange markers allow for snowgroomers and snowmobile riders alike to stay on the trail and away from potentially hazardous areas. The orange color allows the posts to also be better seen in low-light conditions.
Utah State Parks would like to thank these 12 volunteers for dedicating their time to help continue Utah’s legacy of safe and reliable trail systems.
We would also like to give special thanks to Jordanelle State Park representatives Jacob Hinton and Chris Johnson; and the USFS staff from the Heber-Kamas Ranger District.
Keep an eye open for more work from these fellows, and always remember to respect the trail systems that help make Utah great.
