FAWNSKIN, Calif. – The San Bernardino National Forest has announced the availability of the draft Environmental Assessment for the Rattlesnake Mountain Off-Highway-Vehicle Trails project. The U.S. Forest Service is seeking public comment until Dec. 16. The proposed action is to designate 8.1 miles of OHV trail and road access and to close and restore about 25 miles of unauthorized routes in the 8,000-acre project.
Some trail sections also would be changed from non-motorized to motorized. An alternative proposal would designate an additional 4.9 miles of Coxey Road as OHV mixed use.
