Spearhead Trails realizes the needs for our trails in order to allow people to engage in outdoor activity to exercise and enjoy the natural beauty around them by hiking, biking, bird or elk watching or riding your ATV/UTV. The Governor’s orders allow this but maintains that users practice strict social distancing by staying 6 feet apart and avoid gatherings of more than 10 people.

REMEMBER — Spearhead challenges you to 12 feet of social distancing.
