Summerhaven Use Area

Monday, August 1, 2022

Other Names

Summerhaven Trails, Summer Haven Use Area, Sanford Road, Tyler Pond

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers a designated play pit with short but steep hills that consists of sand, gravel and loose chunk rock. There is a large flat parking area but no services so come prepared. The area is open daily except during mud season, so call first before heading out.

The area used to offer a marked seven mile trail loop that lead to a nice picnic area overlooking Tyler Pond but the trails are no longer open to motorized use. Offroad vehicles are only permitted in the designated pit area.
