Plumas National Forest Requests Help Inventorying OHV Areas

Over the next few months, the Plumas National Forest will complete an inventory of all roads, trails, and areas used by off-highway vehicles (including mountain bikes) and ultimately designate a system of routes and areas that are open to OHV use. At this time, all existing routes and areas that are currently being used by OHVs are being mapped.

Between now and Oct 1, 2005, the forest service is providing opportunities for all interested parties to map routes that are currently being used, and to evaluate trail and area conditions. This information will then be used to develop an interim Forest Order, which will be issued in the spring of 2006, and will limit future OHV use to those areas that are mapped - until a final environmental analysis can be completed.

This is your opportunity to ensure that your favorite areas are included in this process. If they are not identified and mapped prior to Oct 1st, they will not be included in the interim Forest Order, and OHV use will be prohibited until a final decision is rendered in 2008. The forest service cannot possibly know all of the areas that you like to recreate on and will certainly miss some without your assistance.

If you have questions, or would like more information, please contact Chance Gowan, OHV Program Manager at 530-283-7792.
