Corral Canyon is the closest OHV area to San Diego. It offers a number of highly valued recreation opportunities. The area features maintained trails for motorcycles, ATV’s, 4X4’s and contains two developed campgrounds.

Corral Canyon OHV Area

The following pictures show before and after pictures of the OHV trails

impacted by Horse Fire. The before pictures were taken in May & June 2006 to document trail conditions. The pictures illustrate some of the severity of the damage to the area. They do not show the damage done by bulldozers during the fire suppression effort. Dozers obliterated several miles of trail in constructing fire line that was used to help control the Horse fire.

current situation
Current Situation

The Forest is in the process of planning and implementing a strategy that will allow OHV users back into Corral Canyon as soon as possible. Burned areas will need fencing installed to help keep users on designated routes. Trails that were obliterated by dozer line will need to be reconstructed.

Patience is needed to ensure that the trails are put back in a sustainable condition. It will take time but Corral Canyon will be back.

slide22
Some areas will require pipe barriers because there will not be sufficient vegetation to keep users from wandering off the trail.

These pipe barriers were installed in 2000 to help keep users on the trail

public involvement
Public Involvement
  • The Forest has talked with key members of the local OHV community about
    • the impacts of the fire,
    • the need to physically construct barriers to define the designed routes and reconstruct the ones obliterated by fire fighting efforts,
    • the need for volunteer, peer based, OHV patrols in the area,
    • the need for volunteers to help install/maintain fence
    • and the need to educate users.
  • Before Corral Canyon can re-open, the damage from the fire must be repaired. We are looking for volunteers to help in this effort. If you or your club are willing to volunteer please contact Richard Tull, OHV Program Manager, at (619) 445 6235 ext 3451 [email protected]
