The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will develop a 2,704 acre expansion to complement the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area, located at Gilbert, Minnesota. This expansion, which was legislatively authorized in 1999, is located about one-mile north of the existing facility, partially within the City of Virginia, Minnesota (Map of Gilbert and Virginia Sites ). It will be linked to and managed from the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area near Gilbert, Minnesota.
Together, the Virginia expansion and the existing Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area will total about 3,900 acres. The project area, will be developed exclusively for trail riding for all classes of Off-highway Vehicles (OHVs). When completed, the new trail system at Virginia will total approximately 75 miles.
Watch for project developments this year!
