Plumas Snowmobile Plan Released

Comments Due December 10

Plumas National Forest has released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a snowmobile management plan. The plan will determine where over-snow vehicles are allowed to go on the forest for the next twenty years.

Five alternatives are described in the DEIS. The Proposed Action, Alternative 2, will close some areas for the benefit of non-motorized recreation and eliminate snowmobiling below 3500 feet. It will also allow vehicles in proposed wilderness areas and the grooming of snowmobile trails right up to a wilderness boundary.

Two open house meetings have been scheduled to discuss the plan and describe the alternatives to the public: Nov 29 in Quincy and Dec 1 in La Porte. Check out our Plumas NF winter travel management page for time and location of the meetings and how to submit comments to the Forest Service to improve the plan.


Pinecrest Ski and Snowshoe Trail Guide

Snowlands Network is proud to make available to the public an up-to-date and accurate guide to the winter trails in the Pinecrest Area along Highway 108. The 14 marked trails begin at two trailheads, the Crabtree and Gooseberry, and connect at Burst Rock Junction. Within these trails there are opportunities for beginner through advanced tours.

We hope that you will enjoy this guide.
