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.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
