hailed the expansion possibilities.
“After years of championing development efforts of AT

economy and would increase re

ATV trails within an hour of Renovo

“Riders are invited to try the Wh

Denton Hill
ATV Trail System and Haneyville ATV Trail
.”
Specifically, as proposed Bloody Skillet will offer:

Addition of 3 miles of trail within the exiting Bloody Skillet trail system;

The openi
ng

a parking lot at Bloody Skillet in conjunction with an additional 1.2 miles
of trail along
a
former rail road grade from Orviston west to the existing connector trail;

The commissioning of a feasibility study to examine connector trail corridors bet
ween the
Bloody Skillet trail system and the town of Renovo; as well as from Renovo to the
Whiskey Springs ATV trail system;

Th
e
study also would look at the safety and sustainability of the same two ATV trail
systems
and provide suggestions for improveme
nt
;

DCNR will
offer a series of public and stakeholder meetings to explain and gather local
input regarding the connector proposals.
As of the end of the summer, ATV active registrations were just short of 166,000

Invited to legally
