The City of Farmington is seeking public input on the design and route of the mountain bike (MTB) and off-highway vehicle (OHV) trails connecting Lake Farmington to the Bureau of Land Management trail access. The public input session will be held on the west side of Lake Farmington, in the parking lot south of the fishing pier at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 12, 2019. No lake access fee is required for the event.
The proposed trails will be tagged and representatives from AMF Clean-Up LLC, the contractor for this project, will be on-site to lead the route tours and public feedback. The MTB and OHV trail connection from Lake Farmington to the Bureau of Land Management trail access is an effort between partners to connect major assets in the region. The goal is to have a trail system linked to major amenities in Farmington and San Juan County, for all outdoor lovers to enjoy.
