Location of Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area in Minnesota

Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area is a State Park unit located east of Lake Ore-be-gone in Gilbert, Minnesota. The recreation area consists of 36 miles (58 km) of trails on a 1,864-acre (754 ha) unit, all of which was local iron ore mining land until 1981. A 3,500-acre (1,400 ha) expansion of the recreation area is also being planned, with land acquisition underway.[1]

The recreation area has trails for all classes of off-highway vehicles defined by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, including Off-Highway Motorcycles, Class I All-Terrain Vehicles, Class II All-Terrain Vehicles, and Off-Road Vehicles.[2]

Minnesota is one of three states to have a state-maintained off-road recreation area, the others being California and Utah.
