Mountwood Park Getting ATV Trail

By fall, ATV enthusiasts will have a place to ride.

Construction begins on a series of trails at Mountwood Park.

The riding area will be an unused tract of land near the park's campground.

That will keep the riders away from the campgrounds, and, more importantly, away from nearby residences.

"We're looking forward to the opportunity to avoid so many landowners having problems with ATV's crossing over their grounds," says Bob Buchanan, the park board president. "Now, they will have a park they can come to and ride all the time that they want."

A number of local businesses have donated labor, equipment and money for the construction project.

Buchanan says none of the cost is coming from taxpayers.

The project is expected to be completed by September.
