Other Names

Hangtown MX, Rancho Cordova, Prairie City, Sac OHV Park, Prairie City State Vehicular Recreation Area Trails, McGills Cycle Park

Last Known StatusOpen

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 motocross practice tracks. Amenities include shaded parking with picnic tables and BBQ pits plus a small parts store located at the edge of the main parking area.

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 it a decent choice for short day trips with the kids.
