AVON – The Day Mountain Road Association is pleased to announce that it has received a Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative grant of $16,000 for the repair of erosion damage on a heavily used OHV connector trail. The grant was awarded as part of Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas.
These grant funds were used to repair significant trail damage on a sloped portion of trail connecting three OHV trail networks. Major areas of erosion were addressed, reducing the environmental impact of the trails on the surrounding forest. In addition, the trail was strengthened to ensure it can be enjoyed by OHV enthusiasts of all kinds, as well as facilitating general recreational access, well into the future. This project also enabled additional improvements further up the mountain that would not have been possible without the support of the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative.
The Day Mountain Road Association would like to thank Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., and our local Yamaha dealer, Central Maine Powersports, for their generous support of this project and commitment to local riding.
