Forest Seeking Comments on San Gabriel CYN OHV Development Plan

Off highway vehicle photo

Over the past couple of years the Angeles National Forest-San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation Department, and Forest Service Enterprise Team have been developing a Master Development Plan for the San Gabriel Canyon OHV area. This plan was made possible through a grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. This plan will serve as a vision and guide for the future operations and improvements of the OHV area. The plan itself is not subject to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Any future improvements beyond the normal day-to-day operations of the site will be fully analyzed through the NEPA process before implementation. Please submit your comments by November 15th.
