China Wall Staging Area - (530)-478-6254 x228

Area Status: Unknown
  
 

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.

China Wall is used as a staging area in summer by 2-wheeled OHV dirt bikes and motorcycles. The trail is not wide enough to accomodate quad OHV's. In the winter China Wall is a staging area for snowmobiles, cross-country skiers, and snowshoe users. When there is snow on the ground it is an easy place for kids to play in the snow, but there are no designated sledding hills.

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
