The Hamilton County Conservation Board reminds all snowmobile riders that the use of snowmobiles inside of Briggs Woods Park and on the Boone River Recreational Trail is prohibited. Briggs Woods Park is a wildlife refuge under Iowa Code Chapter 481 A.5 and Chapter 350/4.11. The refuge status helps protect wildlife during the cold winter months with minimal disturbance as their food source is scarce this time of year. The Briggs Woods Golf Course does offer a designated snowmobile trail that parallels state Highway 17.
