Comment Period Open on TNF OHV Grants

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.

That comment period will be from March 4 to April 7th. The state website is www.ohv.ca.gov .
