South Cow Mountain OHV Area to be Temporarily Closed for Public Safety


The Bureau of Land Management will close the South Cow Mountain off-highway vehicle area to general recreation use and through traffic from 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 30, through Sunday, May 2, for public safety during a motorcycle race.

The North Bay Motorcycle Club has been granted an exclusive-use permit to use the trails around the perimeter of the OHV area to complete the Sawmill Enduro event, which was postponed from its original date due to rain.  "Safety is our first concern," said BLM Field Manager Rich Burns.  "Closing the OHV area during events such as this is critical to protect both the participants and the public from injury."  The area will be reopened to the public on Sunday afternoon, as soon as the last participant is off the course.

Information about the enduro is available from the North Bay Motorcycle Club:  www.northbaymc.org/
