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.

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

  • 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 rtull@fs.fed.us
