Limited Access at Dry Valley OHV Area During Upcoming Hare Scrambles Race

Weekend back country explorers planning to visit the Dry Valley area east of Susanville the weekend of April 7th and 8th will encounter more people than usual, as a two-day motorcycle race is scheduled on public land. Competitors will begin arriving Friday, April 6th.

Course marshals will control traffic on some roads and trails, including Dry Valley Road, while races are in progress, according to Marisa Williams, an outdoor recreation planner with the Bureau of Land Management in Susanville. Spectators are welcome in designated areas at the Mission Wells Trailhead.

“As stewards, we manage public lands in the Dry Valley area for a variety of uses, including off-highway vehicle recreation,” Williams said. “We strive to be a good neighbor by keeping visitors safe and during this special event.”

The Lassen Motorcycle Club and the Motorcycle Racing Association of Northern Nevada are sponsoring the Diamondback Hare Scrambles under a permit issued by the BLM.

To reach the Mission Wells Trailhead from Susanville, take State Route 36 south to the junction of U.S. Highway 395, turn left and continue on U. S. 395 North about 15 miles to the Wendel Road and turn right. Continue about 33 miles, turn left onto Sand Pass Road and continue for a mile to Dry Valley Road on the left. Follow signs to the trailhead.
