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.

The DCR’s Trails Program seeks to provide a safe, quality recreation experience for a diverse range of trail users while practicing sound stewardship of the Commonwealth’s natural and cultural resources. This “Trails Guidelines and Best Practices Manual” meets this responsibility by providing a consistent set of trail management policies, guidelines, procedures, and best practices in sustainable trail development.
VDOT developed this guide to aid the process of grassroots trail planning, based on the knowledge of experienced planners, research of best practices around the nation as well as the State, and the understanding gained from trail development process in the Town of Middleburg.
This report addresses both the technical and political challenges of how communities are paying to maintain trails, bike lanes, and sidewalks. It examines agency maintenance policies and provides examples of communities who’ve successfully made these facilities a priority.
NWT communties are connected by countless numbers of trails, though few of them are dedicated ski trails. With a little work, some equipment and know-how, ski doo trails, walking trails, cutlines, riverbeds, fields and lakes can be turned into quality ski trails. And it’s well worth the effort. Groomed and tracked ski trails are easier to ski on, easier to learn on, better to race on and a whole lot faster than bush trails. Groomed trails turn skiing into skiing!
