Crossing the OHV Divide with Silver Creek Bridge

Environmental responsibility is a key element of OHV recreation on state and federal lands. It is important to know that many units are working hard in a collaborative manner with various stakeholder groups to address conservation issues associated with motorized recreation so that those OHV opportunities are preserved for future generations.

The Eldorado National Forest is a leader in such efforts to solve environmental challenges related to management of both casual OHV use and permitted recreation events.

The agency is required to protect the California Spotted Owl and to safeguard owl nesting sites especially during the spring reproduction season. Recently, the California Enduro Riders Association successfully rerouted a section of the course to avoid conflict with an owl nest so the event could be held.

The Forest has installed a number of structures including the recently completed OHV bridge over lower Rock Creek. This project replaced the low-water crossing along Trail 1 and ensures the long-term viability of this highly popular motorcycle route.

They also constructed an OHV bridge over a perennial tributary of Little Silver Creek as part of the Rock Creek Recreational Trail's decision document. It replaced a low water crossing and was designed to reduce sediment delivery into the stream course.

QWR is believes that the future of OHV recreation can be secured through actions that address important environmental challenges that are associated with motorized access in the 21st Century.
