Compilation of Stakeholder Comments on ATV Connector Trail in Centre, Clinton Counties Now Available
from the DCNR Resource Newsletter - September 20, 2017
DCNR, through the contractor Larson Design Group, is conducting a study to examine the feasibility of constructing a motorized trail that would connect the existing Bloody Skillet ATV trail system in northeastern Centre County to the Whiskey Springs ATV trail system in western Clinton County, passing through the town of Renovo.
Larson Design Group is responsible for proposing recommendations for a connector trail corridor.
The first component of the feasibility study consisted of meeting with local and statewide stakeholders about their concerns and aspirations for a potential trail connector.
The comments collected during a series of stakeholder meetings and through email during February through April are available in the Whiskey Springs Bloody Skillet Feasibility Study Stakeholder Review.
The contractor currently is doing a field review of conceptual routes.
Two upcoming public meetings have been scheduled for October 26 and November 9 from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. at the Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center at Lock Haven University. The objectives of these meetings are to review the findings of the stakeholder review, provide information on conceptual routes, and answer questions and concerns.
The connector feasibility study is in addition to a statewide ATV study currently being completed by Moshier Studio and Pashek Associates. That study is researching and identifying opportunities to partner with local governments, nonprofits, and for-profit organizations to create and develop new ATV parks, trails, and facilities to meet the needs of ATV owners.
DCNR currently maintains 273 miles of designated ATV trails on state forest lands. Visit the DCNR website for more information about ATV riding.
