The San Bernardino National Forest has approved construction of new trails, designation of existing, user created trails as authorized trails, and restoration of unauthorized trails, in the Baldy Mesa Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area. New amenities will also be added to the Baldy Mesa Staging Area, and the parking area will be reorganized to be more user-friendly. The project is intended to provide a legal alternative to ongoing unauthorized OHV use.
The San Bernardino National Forest prepared an EA for the project in September 2013 and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact and Decision Notice approving the project in September 2013. The OHMVR Division proposes to award OHV Trust Funds through the Grants Program to the San Bernardino National Forest and the Southern California Mountains Foundation in support of the rehabilitation project. This action is a project subject to review under CEQA.
