Nevada City, Calif. – December 31 is the last day many roads and trails on the Tahoe National Forest will be open for the season. Wet and snowy weather necessitates closure of some routes to prevent resource damage.


There are off-highway vehicle (OHV) trails that have already been closed due to wet weather conditions on the American River Ranger District. Motorized use on saturated routes causes surfaces to become rutted, leading to erosion and sedimentation issues.


This past spring, the Tahoe National Forest issued a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) that provides a complete list of authorized roads and trails for motorized use. For those routes with seasonal closures, the MVUM lists opening and closing dates, as well as any other restrictions.


“This is the first year implementing the MVUM, so we want to ensure forest users are informed about seasonal closures on our world class OHV and other motorized routes on the Tahoe National Forest,” said Forest Supervisor Tom Quinn. “In past years, many of our trails, while not officially closed, were de facto closed as a result of snow and winter weather.”


A complete list of roads and trails and closure dates or restrictions can be found on the Tahoe National Forest 2013 Motor Vehicle Use Maps. The maps are free and available at any Tahoe National Forest office, as well as online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/tahoe/maps-pubs. Digital versions of the maps can also be downloaded to mobile devices through the Avenza PDF Map app.
