We highly recommend a 4×4 with a low range transfer case in order to get the most out of the trails at the OHV Park. If you don’t own one, perhaps you can ride along with friends that do? Everyone is welcome to join our DIY Fundraising Team through the MS Society and help raise money to fight MS!
The Crawl event includes trail rides, banquet and social events throughout the weekend. Most participants stay nearby at campgrounds, hotels, motels or short-term rentals in the area. Sherwood Forest Campground and West 40 RV Park are open only to registered Crawl 4 the Cure participants that weekend. Once you register for the event you will receive a code that can be used to access available campsites during Crawl weekend.
Offroad trail riding is inherently risky and there is always a chance of damaging your vehicle. That being said, there are trails for all types of 4x4s, from stock to highly modified.
The Iron Range Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Area is run by the Minnesota DNR. Your vehicle needs to have a Minnesota OHV trail sticker, which is $38.50 for 3 years and can be purchased online prior to the event, at the park office, or at your local Minnesota DMV office. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/licenses/ohv/index.html
A full event schedule will be posted prior to the event, but most people arrive in the area Thursday afternoon/evening. We have organized trail rides Friday, a Friday night street dance, trail rides Saturday, and the highlight of the weekend – Saturday evening’s banquet. The event officially wraps up Saturday night around 9pm so most stay overnight to head home on Sunday.
Tickets are available through Crawl planning committee members, approved sellers, sponsor businesses and at events throughout MN. Watch our social media sites and the Raffle Jeep page for information.
Our hub of operations is the Gilbert Ice Arena, Gilbert, MN 55741 , Iowa Ave E. This is where you will check in, attend Friday’s street dance, bid on silent auction items, and participate in the banquet. Most of our trail rides take place at the Iron Range OHV Park, also in Gilbert.
