Heading Off Road?
Sonora, CA — The cooler temperatures are heating up the Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails on the Stanislaus National Forest. That has prompted forest officials to remind ATV and other OHV riders to stay out of Rim Fire closure areas and take safety precautions.
“Make sure that you know the trail conditions,” says Forest Spokesperson Rebecca Garcia. “People may have been out on the trails the last season, but things can change, so it’s important to find out before you go and take the time to read the signage that is out on the trails.”
In addition, Garcia warns big machines and small kids do not mix. She suggests you make sure the vehicle is age appropriate.
As we reported earlier, a lawsuit settlement reached this year on motorized off-highway vehicle trails in the Stanislaus National Forest will require you to get a map so you do not break the rules. Click here for details.
