FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Adventure Trails Pilot Program Coming to an End 

Inyo County is offering advanced notice that the Adventure Trails Pilot Program will be sunsetting on  January 1, 2025.

Assembly Bill 628, approved in 2011, authorized the County to establish a pilot project to designate  highway segments as combined-use to allow certain non-street legal vehicles to drive on certain  County roads to access goods, services, and existing off-highway vehicle trails. The Board of  Supervisors authorized the designation of seven routes for combined use in 2015, and lobbied for  extension of the program to January 2025 via SB 1345 and SB 402.

The program aimed to balance tourism and environmental protection, by steering OHV users to  appropriate trails and recreation areas.

With the program coming to an end, the Board of Supervisors wants to encourage continued safe and  respectful OHV usage on local public lands, as is also encouraged by Tread Lightly! – a non-profit  organization that leads a national initiative to promote the responsible use of motorized vehicles when  recreating outdoors. The organization’s goal is to balance off-road and off-highway vehicle users’ need  for adventure with the need to conserve the places where they ride and explore.
