On October 16th, the Bureau of Land Management will begin repairing fire and flood damage to trails in the Fort Sage Off-Highway-Vehicle area in southern Lassen County. The BLM is asking riders to be careful in all sections of the OHV area.

“There are very deep gullies on sections of Trail Nine, a popular route in the southeast area of the OHV area,” said Marisa Williams, an outdoor recreation planner with the BLM’s Eagle Lake Field Office in Susanville.

“Riders should pay attention to signs and flagging marking the damage. Riders may encounter washed out trail sections in other parts of the OHV area.”

Riders are also advised to stay on established trails to avoid areas that have been re-seeded due to the Long Valley Fire damage. Vehicle tracks and even footprints hamper growth of plants that are essential to wildlife.

The BLM is committed to keeping public landscapes healthy and productive. For additional information, contact Williams by phone at 530-252-5303, or by email at [email protected].
