Vital Information for Northern California off-road motorcyclists
Although this is not a speedway topic, I believe it is of vital importance to all off-road riders in the Auburn area. I am therefore using speedwaybikes.com to communicate this information. There is an imminent danger that many of our off-road riding areas in the Tahoe National Forest will become unavailable to us. I would encourage all off-road users, not just motorcyclists or followers of the sport of Speedway to help with the process described below. This process will even affect users of mountain bikes, so the concern is clearly not limited to "damage" by noise or tire treads.
The Tahoe National Forest Service is working on a Route Designation Process. The Forest Service has developed a process to "reduce impact and user conflicts" which could reduce or even eliminate some of the currently available trails through the Tahoe National Forest.
They are working on a 5 stage process (full details below) to document current trails, prohibiting all OHV's, including mountain bikes from anywhere undocumented, then designating which of the current routes to designate for future OHV use. Bottom line is, we are going to lose the availability of many of our trails. We must take immediate action.
The first stage of documenting the current trails involves getting hold of their maps, available from
USDA Forest Service and checking that their maps contain all the trails that we currently use.
Also 5 public workshops will be held in the Tahoe National Forest area. The purpose of these workshops is to learn more about this route designation process, to answer questions and to review the existing routes as mapped. They are:
Downieville Aug 24, Downieville Community Hall, 327 Main St. 6.30pm - 8pm.
Foresthill Aug 26, Foresthill Ranger Station 22830 Foresthill Road, 6.30pm - 8pm
Truckee, Aug 29 Truckee Donner Public Utility District Board Room, 11570 Donner Pass Rd. 6.30pm - 8pm
Sierraville, Aug 30 Sierraville Ranger Station, 317 S. Lincoln (Hwy89) 6.30pm - 8pm
Nevada City, Aug 31 TNF Headquarters 631 Coyote St. 6.30pm - 8pm
All OHV users are encouraged to attend the meetings and help provide details of our favorite trails.
All details of trails must be submitted by September 30.
Names of those who can provide more information include the following:
David Michael, OHV coordinator for the TNF, 530 478 6183 or email@example.com
Phil Horning, Project coordinator 530 478 6210 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Jon George, American River Ranger District OHC coordinator 530 994 3401 ext. 6667 or email@example.com
Ann Westling, Public affairs officer, 530 478 6205 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Details of the 5 step process:
Completing the inventory/map of existing roads, trails and routes used by wheeled vehicles, including mountain bicycles.
Issuing a Temporary Forest Order that prohibits wheeled vehicle use (including mountain bike off of mapped existing routes or open areas.
Proposing a system of OHV routes.
Making a final decision as to which routes will be designated for OHV use.
Issuing a Forest Order for designated routes and signing those routes.
The timelines for each step is:
Step 1 to be finished by March 2006
Step 2 to be finished by June 2006
Step 3 to be finished by February 2007
Step 4 to be finished by December 2007
Step 5 to be finished by September 2008
By the end of step 5, I foresee the creation of a new most endangered species. It could well be the off-road motorcyclist!
