Off-road trail opens Saturday

The grand opening of the Clear Creek Off-Highway Vehicle Trails at Blackwater River State Forest is set for 8 a.m. Saturday.

Professional motorcycle rider Ricky Carmichael will ride the trail as part of the celebration.

“Ricky is excited that another trail is opening up in the state,” said JH Leale of Ricky Carmichael Racing. “When he started riding 30 years ago, there weren’t a lot of places to ride.”

While Carmichael is a professional, Leale said the trails are enjoyable for riders regardless of experience.

“They are fun places to ride, but there are also challenges if you are looking for them,” Leale said. “I know Ricky is looking forward to being there for the opening.”

A ribbon cutting is scheduled for 10 a.m. The trail is located at 8348 Redbird Trail in Milton.
