Forest Service Effects Interface Restrictions
The U.S. Forest Service announced late last week that Interface Recreation Areas of the Calaveras Ranger District are now under Vehicle and Mountain Bike restrictions.
Forest Service officials say previous efforts in the interface area have focused on educating the public about safe riding practices and preventing damage to resources.
Now, the new Forest Order adds an enforcement tool as well.
Starting over the weekend, the Forest Service and Calaveras County Sheriff patrols began monitoring the area, stepping up enforcement to manage the roadways and trails.
