 Chappie-Shasta Off-Highway Vehicle Area management consolidated under BLM

The transfer of approximately 11,700 acres within the Chappie-Shasta OHV area from the Forest Service to the Bureau of Land Management was completed this summer thanks to HR 689, a bill authored by Congressman Wally Herger and co-sponsored by Senator Dianne Feinstein. BLM now manages the entire Chappie-Shasta OHV area located near Redding, California, offering 200 miles of roads and trails on more than 52,000 acres for off-road enthusiasts.
