County Forestry opens trails to OHV use

The Hood River County Forestry Department announced last week that trails on its property opened for off-highway vehicle use starting March 1. Trails have been open to the public but closed to motorized use over the winter. HRCF advises caution because about a third or half of the trails will still be under snow or blocked by downed timber from winter storms. County maintenance staff and volunteers will work on the trails to get them opened and get needed repairs completed.

For questions or to report trail issues, contact Henry Buckalew at 541-387-7089
