For a certain tribe, these rains mean mud and a trip to Ukiah’s Cow Mountain, an off-roading destination that attracts mud-seekers all around NorCal.
But, these rains have prompted the Bureau of Land Management to close the management area. These sorts of closures are often utilized to prevent soil loss and damaging roadways.
The following statement was published on the South Cow Mountain website:
The South Cow Mountain OHV Management Area is temporarily closed due to heavy precipitation and poor road and trail conditions. For more information, call 707-468-4000.
