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 Friday, April 9, through Sunday, April 11, to provide public safety during two motorcycle race events.

The North Bay Motorcycle Club has been granted an exclusive use permit to utilize the trails around the perimeter of the OHV area for the Crosscut Family Enduro and Sawmill Enduro events.  "We are expecting as many as 200 riders per event, all riding at a high rate of speed." said BLM Ukiah Field Office Manager Rich Burns.   "We have to be as certain as we can be that no one accidentally gets onto the race course, for the safety of both the participants and the public."  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 events is available from the North Bay Motorcycle Club:  www.northbaymc.org/
