Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area Expansion

Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area Expansion

At 2,700 acres, the Expansion Site is over twice the size of the Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area, also known as just "Gilbert." Each zone offers different physical attributes, trail layout opportunities and potential visitor experiences. Some areas possess topographic relief and views of pastoral and rural landscapes, while other areas are low-lying forested and wetland zones typical of northern Minnesota.
