CEDAR CITY — A section of land at Three Peaks Recreation Area will be closed for an off-road race later this month.
The Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office will temporarily restrict access to the area on May 30 and 31 as a safety requirement for a scheduled Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts race. The two-day closure of the large group campsite, and trailheads for hiking and off-highway vehicle area will be from 6 a.m. May 30 to 11:59 p.m. on May 31.
"We have worked closely with SNORE to facilitate a safe race with minimal disturbance to the land and other uses," said Dave Jacobson, BLM's outdoor recreation planner.
Most of the recreation area will remain open, including the Radio Control Airplane Model Port, equestrian trailhead, and portions of the mountain-bike trail system.
The Iron County shooting range at Three Peaks will be closed on May 31. Visitors are encouraged to pay attention to signs and avoid roped-off closed sections. A designated spectator area will be available at no cost to the public near the OHV trailhead and at Three Peaks County Park. Local law enforcement will patrol the area during the closure period.
