SUPERIOR — In observance of Memorial Day, city and county offices will be closed Monday, May 29. Our regular business hours will begin again starting Tuesday, May 30 at 8 a.m.

As of May 19, the Douglas County summer ATV/UTV Trails are open for the season. Please note that the trails are in early season conditions and are not graded yet, as the trail clubs are working hard to get the trails cleaned from all of the debris that fell across the trails this winter and was covered by snowpack. With that being said, while riding, feel free to push any branches off of the trails.

Douglas County managed OHM Trails will remain closed at this time. The Forestry Department stresses that some of our neighboring counties aren’t open yet, therefore asks to check open trails before you ride.
