Big News.....no HUGE NEWS...
The Town of Mercer Board has approved all town roads open to ATV/UTV access except the following: Portage Avenue, Margaret Street between Library Street and County Highway J, and John Dul Road. This is a huge accomplishment for the ATV/UTV community in Mercer. Getting to the trails will now be easier. Thanks to all who supported this issue. Note that this only includes town roads and not county roads.
Please be respectful, watch your speed down residential roads and stay off of private property. We don't want to loose this privilege.
Remember, the new bike trail in town is for non-motorized vehicles only. Please watch where you are going and keep to the gravel trail!
We are continuously looking to improve our trail system. If you see a trail that needs maintenance, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
Calling All Volunteers
Want to help out? We are looking for volunteers to help sell raffle tickets, participate at events and help groom and maintain the trails. If interested, please contact Lora at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate the help!
