RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – Officials from the Army Corps of Engineers, Russellville Project Office remind the public that operating all-terrain vehicles on the mountain bike trails in Old Post Road Park is illegal and creates erosion and unsafe trail conditions.
Federal regulations prohibit the unauthorized operation of ATVs and destruction of government property. Violators are subject to penalties such as monetary fines to a possible appearance before a federal magistrate.
Rangers are closely monitoring the adjacent government property with the intent of stopping this activity.
“We believe violators are accessing the trails near the Skyline Vista Lane subdivisions,” said Park Manager Scott Fryer. “Volunteers have invested thousands of hours on the maintenance of Old Post Road’s bike trail system.”
Please respect and help maintain the natural beauty of public lands by reporting illegal ATV activities to the Russellville Project Park Manager at 501-340-1748.
