JUNIOR OHV PROGRAM AT METCALF MOTORCYCLE PARK
Congratulations to our Fall 2023 Junior OHV program participants!
Registration will reopen in a few months for the Spring 2024 program.
Is your child curious about nature? Do they have a motorcycle and want to learn how to ride safely while also keeping our parks healthy? In our Junior Ranger OHV program at Metcalf Motorcycle Park, certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) coaches will teach you basic riding skills and discuss safety equipment, rider etiquette and trail conservation. Participants must be ages 9-12, own a motorcycle, and sign a liability waiver.
Upon completion of the five free sessions, each Junior OHV Ranger will receive a badge, jersey, and certificate.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and participants must complete a registration form and liability waiver before participating in the five-session program.
The Junior OHV Ranger Program provides an opportunity to teach young riders about environmental stewardship by using the park as an outdoor classroom through fun riding adventures.
