Open Houses Aim to Gather Your Input on New OHV Trails


The Sierra Butte Trail Stewardship wants your thoughts on updating and building trails in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service. The grant cycle for OHV use is underway, and the non-profit and the Tahoe National Forest will hold a series of open houses to gather community input. Your first chance to attend will be in Downieville, home to the famous Downieville Classic, at the Yuba Expeditions Space from 4:30 to 6 February 24th.

Scheduled work in Downieville includes the maintenance of 80 miles of motorized singletrack through the OHV Grants Program. You can also learn more about the organization’s existing projects, including a progress report on Connected Communities—the effort in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service to connect 15 mountain towns through multi-use trails to create economic stability in the Lost Sierra region through outdoor recreation, an estimated billion dollar industry.
