Forest OHV trails reopen for 2015; feature improvements

To protect trails and riders, OHV areas are subject to closure after prolonged or heavy rainfall when usage would result in forest damage. Before every ride, OHV users are encouraged to ‘call before you haul’ and check the recreation conditions report online at go.usa.gov/3jkxQ.
“By treading lightly you can ride hard and still keep the trail beautiful, healthy, and open for future generations” added Jewett.
