The purpose of the Prison Hill Recreation Area Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Management Plan is to provide the framework to proactively manage the approximately 960 acres open to OHV use by outlining a prescribed set of management activities. The plan will be implemented through a phased approach.
The intent of this management plan is to provide the framework to successfully manage quality OHV recreational opportunities and will not override the guiding principles set forth in the Carson City Open Space Plan and the Carson City Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
This multi-phased project will provide Carson City residents and visitors a wide variety of high- quality off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreational opportunities that are free to the public in a well-managed day-use setting. The look and feel of the site will represent professionalism and quality and offer an array of unique features to attract beginners, experts, competitors, families, and non-motorized enthusiasts. The sustainable network of designated trails and facilities within the Prison Hill Recreation Area is a genuine asset and a family-friendly OHV destination for Carson City and its residents.
