Road Closed To Dirt Bikes
The U.S. Forest Service has temporarily banned off-road vehicles from a Stanislaus National Forest road to quell an ongoing dispute between dirt-bike riders and Arnold-area residents. Off-road vehicles will no longer be permitted to use Forest Service Road 5N95Y. Forest Service officials hope the ban will solve dust and noise problems for Lakemont Pines residents. There will be a community meeting on the ban and other interim measures at the Hathaway Pines ranger station tomorrow.
