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.
Each year, the LassenNational Forest has an opportunity to submit grant applications to the California State Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) for consideration for funding in support of the Forest’s on-going Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) program.The Division is currently soliciting proposals for the 2015 grant cycle, and the Lassen National Forest is considering one project for submission. Preliminary applications for 2015 projects are available for review and comment on the OHMVR Division's website, http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/.
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.
