Mendocino National Forest Trail 6 Closed

Willows, CA. (Mar 30, 2010) - Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Trail 6 on the Grindstone Ranger District of the Mendocino National Forest in California is closed between the intersections of Forest Roads 17N70 and 17N69 beginning today.

The approximately 2,000 foot section of trail, less than half a mile, will be closed until further notice for the evaluation of resource damage. Specifically, specialists will be looking at archaeological resources affected by the trail.

Forest archaeologists will be excavating the site to determine if it is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Until that determination is made, the section of trail will remain closed.

The trail can be found on the Motor Vehicle Opportunity Guides for the Grindstone Ranger District.

The Emergency Trail Closure for this section of the OHV trail system is formally referenced under Order Number 08-10-02.
Violation of this closure order is punishable by a fine of no more than $5,000 for an individual, $10,000 for an organization, or up to six months imprisonment or both.

For more information, please contact the Mendocino National Forest at 530-934-3316 or visit
