The Blueberry Run Trail is a trail that was developed on the abandon rail bed a number of years ago by a local community group. After hurricane Juan the trail was devastated and the community group no longer had the resources to keep up with maintenance and trail patrol.
The Marine Riders ATV Club was beginning to grow and had these resources. Interested in keeping this community trail open we began the process towards taking over the Letter of Authority for the trail. The community group relinquished their letter of authority over the trail and wrote a letter to the Department of Natural Resources stating that they supported the Marine Riders ATV Club taking over the letter of authority for the Blueberry Run Trail.
After meetings with DNR on this unprecedented turn of events, the Marine Riders ATV Club was given the letter of authority over the trail. The trail had been deemed as a shared use trail for walking, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and ATVing in the past. Part of taking over the trail was agreeing to keep it open to the same shared users.
