Each year, the Tahoe National Forest applies for grants to help maintain the Off Highway Vehicle opportunities on forest land. The funding comes through the California Department of Parks and Recreation, and this year Trails-Recreation Specialist for the Tahoe Forest, Joe Chavez says they are looking at reclaiming some deadend roads, creating more single track trails for use by hikers, bikers, motorcycles and horses. And they also want to improve the parking for the Little Truckee summit staging area.

Chavez says when the applications are submitted, they will be available ot the California OHV website and there will be a period when people can formally provide input to the state for the grants. That comment period will be from March 4 to April 7th. The state website is www.ohv.ca.gov .
