Off Highway Vehicle and Western States Trail users may be affected by sections of periodic, intermittent trail closure on Loop 5, Trail 5-6 and the Western States Trail. This will only occur when treatment areas are actively in progress near the trail. Work will not occur on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Public notices and maps will be posted at the China Wall, Parker Flat and Sugar Pine OHV Staging Areas. Information will be updated regularly as work progresses. Intermittent closure signs will be posted at the access point of the affected trail sections while work is in progress. Traffic signs and flaggers will be in place where work is occurring within 300 feet of Foresthill Road (88 Rd.) and Mitchell Mine Road (88-13 Rd.). Please see the attached map.
While traveling or recreating in the area, please stay alert for signs warning of the activity, watch for personnel and equipment. Do not approach operations.
