MRGP Policy – Power-Driven Mobility Devices

The Mianus River Gorge Preserve, Inc. owns or manages over 760 acres of forested land in Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, CT. This Preserve was established to preserve an old-growth forest remnant, to protect the integrity of the Mianus watershed, to conserve native biodiversity, and to conduct ecological research. As has been our history, we have sought to keep the impact of human recreation to a minimum. We maintain a modest, minimal trail system where the only human use is day hiking.

The MRGP’s 2.5 miles of trails (red, blue, and green) are often less than 36 inches wide and are constructed with wooden water bars and stone steps to prevent the erosion and degradation of the trail system. This construction coupled with the MRGP’s undulating topography and the placement of our trails on or near steep slopes makes the use of wheelchairs, bicycles, and other power-driven mobility devices (OPDMD) infeasible and dangerous. Furthermore, use of these devices will threaten the ecological integrity of the preserve, can cause damage to rare and sensitive old-growth soils, and can adversely impact our research and restoration activities.

For your safety and to protect the integrity of our old-growth forest, these devices are not permitted on the hiking trails owned or managed by the Mianus River Gorge Preserve, Inc. These policies also apply to MRGP staff. Motorized devices cannot be used on hiking trails for regular maintenance.
