Prairie City SVRA

Saturday, January 25, 2014
Alt Names Hangtown MX, Rancho Cordova, Prairie City, Sac OHV Park, Prairie City State Vehicular Recreation Area Trails
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

Home of the well known Hangtown MX track, this state recreation area is host to one round of the AMA Nationals motocross series each summer. For the remainder of the year, however, the recreation area is open for public riding.

The large open fields and small rolling hills offer a web of easy to moderate trails packed into a relatively small area (see "Trail Map"). There is a 4x4 designated area, and there are multiple MX practice tracks. Shaded parking is available, with picnic tables and BBQ pits.

A small parts store is located at the edge of the main parking area, and limited concessions and ATV rentals are available. This is a gated, pay to ride, heavily regulated park, which caters more to track riders, and offers just a handful of trails. It's proximity to Sacramento makes a decent choice for short day trips with the kids.
