Sugar Pine Staging Area - (530)-478-6254 x228
During the winter months, the American River OHV system may be closed after periods of heavy rain when soil moisture levels would likely result in trail damage if riding were to occur. For the most up to date information, please call (530)-478-6254 x228
Closure notice: Loop 6, of the Foresthill OHV system, is closed at the “lower bridge”, due to major bridge damage by a large tree that fell this spring. The trail is still open on both sides, but the bridge is impassable.
This is the main staging area for the Foresthill OHV Trails. The large gravel parking lot area is the best location for day users to park and for RV or toy hauler camping (camping subject to closure per forest order). There are no hookups or water. There are vault toilet restrooms and trash containers centrally located. Loading ramps are available.
Beginning fall of 2020, the Sugar Pine Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Wet Weather Management Plan will be implemented for OHV Roads and Trails on American River Ranger District. This will increase OHV riding opportunities by adopting a more flexible open/close strategy for riding in Foresthill CA. This soil-moisture condition-based approach will help Trail Managers determine when existing OHV roads and trails should be opened or closed in the Sugar Pine Motorized Trail System area. The associated operating plan will minimize resource damage caused by travel during wet weather periods. The removal of the fixed wet weather seasonal closure dates are expected to reduce future sediment delivery and improve water quality. Up to date closure status can be found at the voicemail (530)-478-6254 x228. During fall and winter months, please check this number frequently to get up to date OHV riding opportunities and closure status
