“OHV recreation can be an exhilarating and exciting experience for novice and seasoned enthusiasts alike,” said Ukiah Field Manager Nick Lavrov. “Critical to the sport, we ask the public to make safety a priority and recreate responsibly to preserve the amazing landscapes and create the best rides for now and future generations in the years to come.”
The event will start at the Westside Staging Area with a safety clinic that is focused on responsible operation of an off-highway vehicle. Topics will cover “Know before you go” principles, and how to be safe while on the trail. Visitors may also enjoy visiting the Leave No Trace, TREAD Lightly! and other trail etiquette booths with outdoor activities throughout the day.
The South Cow Mountain OHV Management Area encompasses roughly 23,000 acres of public lands challenging motorcyclists, all-terrain vehicle drivers, and four-wheel drive enthusiasts.
