REPUBLICAN CITY, Nebr. (February 11, 2010) - The grand opening for the Cedar Run ATV Trail at Harlan County Lake has been set for Saturday, May 1.

The Nebraska Off-Highway Vehicle Association will sponsor a noon lunch at the trail for businesses and individuals who donated to the project, contractors who helped build the trails and trailhead amenities, project partners, and NOHVA members and guests.

The public is invited to join in the general festivities set to begin at 1:00 p.m. , with Lt. Governor Rick Sheehy and other state, federal and local officials scheduled to speak at that time. At 1:30 p.m. , trainers certified by the national ATV Safety Institute will give a presentation on safe riding behavior and proper protective gear.

At 2:00 p.m. , games for riders will begin, highlighted by a scavenger hunt fun-ride through the new trail system, with prizes to be given away for winners. This event is being sponsored by Team MGR, one of the project's major donors. There is no registration cost for this or any other of the day's events.

The 470-acre, $250,000 trail project was developed and implemented by the Harlan County Tourism Office and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Harlan Lake , with primary funding provided by the Federal Highway Administration's Recreational Trails Program, which is administered in Nebraska by the Game and Parks Commission. Trails were built by the U.S. Forest Service enterprise program, Trails Unlimited.

Helmets are mandatory for all riders at the trail.
