Mendocino National Forest officials have issued a wet weather trail closure, Forest Order No. 08-22-04, effective 7:00 a.m. on Friday, April 15, 2022. Temporary wet weather trail closures go into effect when two inches of rainfall occur within a 24-hour period or when the soils are saturated. The wet weather off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail closures restrict the use of OHV trails when conditions are too wet to sustain use without causing soil loss, impacting water quality, damaging trail tread and putting public safety at risk. This limited duration closure will remain in place until no measurable precipitation is recorded within 48 consecutive hours.
