The Lassen National Forest lies at the heart of one of the most fascinating areas of California, called the Crossroads. Here the granite of the Sierra Nevada, the lava of the Cascades and the Modoc Plateau, and the sagebrush of the Great Basin meet and blend.
A celebration in northern California will bring partners together to share the accomplishments in wilderness management in the 50 years since the enactment of the Wilderness Act. This event is scheduled for next year - October 10-12, 2014.
Participating agencies and organizations will include the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Backcountry Horsemen of California, Pacific Crest Trail Association, and more to come...
On June 30, 2010, the Lassen National Forest released its first annual Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). This map culminated nearly six years of planning and defined our baseline system of public roads and motorized trails. Cross country travel by wheeled motorized vehicles off this transportation system is now permanently prohibited except by special use permit. As this system evolves in coming years we intend to better accommodate various forms of motorized vehicle uses while protecting resources and improving management of a broad range of visitor activities.
