Illegal all-terrain vehicles have accessed a popular biking and walking trail in Brick, leading to damage on the property. In response, the trail will be receiving new protections.
The Airport Tract trail, which runs between Drum Point and Cherry Quay roads, will receive guard rails at its entrances, said Council President Paul Mummolo.
“The township has experienced problems with dirt bikes and quad vehicles damaging the trail,” he said.
The guard rails will prevent ATVs and similar vehicles from accessing the paths. Their installation will be funded by a $24,000 grant from the state, which will also include some repairs to areas that have sustained damage.
