The Bureau of Land Management announced Monday that parts of the Millican Plateau and North Millican OHV Trail Systems will be closed this weekend for the annual side-by-side race hosted by King of the Kastle, LLC.
BLM said the course and several points of entry into the area will be closed Friday through Sunday for the safety of participants and the public.
Here is more from BLM:
Security will be staged at entrance points into the racecourse throughout the weekend. Flaggers and signage will also be present along George Millican Road and at entrance points into the racecourse. Please see attached map for trail closure details.
“We manage over 250 miles of trails within the Millican Plateau, North Millican, and South Millican OHV Trail Systems,” said Lisa Clark, Deschutes Field Office Manager. “This allows us the unique opportunity to permit a long side-by-side race like this while also ensuring numerous other trails are still available to the public during the event.”
The high-quality trails and facilities within the Millican Valley OHV Trail System are collaboratively managed by the Central Oregon Combined Off Highway Vehicle Operations (COHVOPS). COHVOPS is a partnership which includes the Prineville District BLM, Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests, and Oregon Parks and Recreation ATV Program.
