Recreation Areas and Facilities

Staging Area

The staging area is set up for both parking and picnicking. There are shaded picnic sites spaced throughout the area. Restrooms, drinking water, barbecue grills, and fire pits (bring your own wood) are available.

Motorcycle/ATV Area

There are many trails throughout the motorcycle/ATV area. Most of the trails in the park are beginner or intermediate with just a few expert trails. The trails are designated as two-way in direction, so use caution when negotiating blind curves, hills, and jumps. Keep to the right of the trail as much as possible.

Hangtown MX Track

The Hangtown MX Track, which is home to the annual national outdoor MX championship, is privately operated year round for practice by E Street MX. The track is just over a mile in length with challenging terrain and high jumps for expert level motocross riders.  The track is watered and groomed daily when in operation. For track schedule and information contact www.prairiecitymx.com.

Practice Tracks

Just below the Staging Area is a MX Practice Track and ATV Practice Track on separated courses.  The tracks consist of jumps and banked turns intended for intermediate to advanced level riders.  Tracks are groomed and watered on a semi-regular basis and riders are advised to ride with caution.

Kid’s Tracks

The Kid’s Track facility is limited to riders ages 14 years and younger.  The facility is divided into two separate tracks.  The 70cc Beginner Kid’s Track is for beginner-level children on motorcycles and ATVs 70cc and under.  The 110cc Intermediate Kids’s Track is for intermediate-level riders on motorcycles and ATVs 110cc and under.  Both areas are for young OHV enthusiasts to develop riding skills under the safety of direct adult supervision.

Quarter Midget Track

The Quarter Midget Track is used by the American Quarter Midget Association (HotLine: (916)491-5437) for both practice and competitive events. Five to 16-year-olds race these scaled down versions of midget racing cars for trophies and prestige. This track now has lights allowing for racing in the cooler evenings. Additional information is available on the American Quarter Midget Association website.

Go-Kart Track

The Go-Kart Track is a Grand Prix-style track that has many intricate twists and turns. This track is used by several categories of competitive go-karts. The racing is very fast and exciting. The track is operated by All Star Karting, open for practice on a regular basis.  For more information, please visit the All Star Karting website at  www.allstarkarting.com.

Mini MX Track

The Mini MX Track is a short dirt Oval TT/Flat Track and Arena Cross style track combination.  The track is designed to accommodate the growing sport of Supermotard type motorcycles and allow riders to improve their skills.  There are three variations including a flat track, oval with dirt jumps and arena style jumps with use of the oval.  The track is a new addition and will be operated during limited use on weekdays and weekends by Arena Cross TT.  Visit the Arena Cross TT website for details at www.prairiecitydirttrack.com.

4 X 4 Area

The 4 x 4 area is open to 4 x 4's, buggies, Pilots, and Odysseys. For safety reasons, motorcycles and ATVs are not permitted to use this area.The 4 x 4 area is a haven for 4-wheel drive enthusiasts that love our mud. We have a very heavy clay that is extremely challenging for our mud enthusiasts. Just remember, if you get stuck, you are responsible for getting yourself out.

In addition, we have constructed obstacles in the 4-wheel drive obstacle course. We now have the Stairsteps, Frametwister, Mini-Rubicon, Mud Pit, Gravel Pit, and Dry River Bed. The obstacles range from very easy to extremely difficult. Be careful, as it is very easy to damage your vehicle.

Special Events

Prairie City is host to many different special events. Occasionally, we have to close all or part of the park for these events to take place. It is always a good idea to give the park a call before you drive all the way out here. The phone number is (916) 985-7378.

Environmental Training Center

The Environmental Training Center was designed to teach safe and environmentally responsible off-highway recreation practices. The facility consists of a classroom, two training ranges, a three-acre trail system landscaped with California native plants. The trail system allows trainers to instill respect for the land while challenging participants to real-life riding conditions.
