OHV Staging Area
Mineral County was awarded a grant through the State of Nevada Off-Highway Vehicles Program to fund an OHV Staging Area off of Armory Road. As an OHV friendly community, we would like to provide a safe place for trail users to park before accessing our trails.
We are hoping this will only be the first phase of the project, but it will include a 300’x500’ parking area covered with gravel, bollards around the perimeter, and a 3-panel information kiosk installed by The Mineral County Sportsmen’s Club. The kiosk will not only provide trail maps and a QR code for NVOHV mapping data and OHV registration information, but also signage provided by Tread Lightly! Inc. to encourage all to do their part in cleaning up trash and debris along their routes. Mineral County plans to apply for another grant for the second phase of this project which we hope to include covered parking structures, vaulted restrooms, and water refill stations, dependent upon available resources.
This staging area will also serve as a location to host OHV Registration Drives as well as OHV Safety Training. Under this project, signage donated by the Nevada Offroad Association, will be installed around the Staging Area directing OHV traffic in an attempt to keep traffic off of community roads creating dust hazards and safety issues.
Mineral County received letters of support from The Mineral County Sportsmen’s Club, Tread Lightly! Inc., and The Walker Basin Conservancy. These organizations have all offered their support as well as time and materials to assist with this project.
