Inland Empire 4 Wheelrs join forces with the USDA Forest Service to maintain and repair OHV trails in the San Bernardino Nation Forest assuring they remain open for public access.
OHV use in the National Forest depends upon the efforts of volunteers and their partnership with businesses that care about the outdoors. For each adoption the partners include an OHV or community group, a business, and the Forest Service. Each one gives something—the Forest Service gives the necessary training, supplies and equipment when possible; the business provides an annual cash contribution ($500 or $1000), and the group provides the maintenance needed to sustain recreational use by the public throughout the operating season.
Local ranger districts decide which trails or routes should be adopted and the Adopt-A-Trail Coordinator makes the route assignments based on the groups request and trail needs.
Each trail is different, but this is a list of the types of maintenance that can be required.
• Removing logs, brush and boulders that encroach on the trail
• Install, repair, and clean water bars or other drainage structures
• Provide protection for stream crossings, meadows, and wet areas
• Maintain trail to the designated rating
• Remove traces of any use that occurs off the designated trail
• Remove litter and any foreign items from trail
• Install, maintain, and replace trail markers
• Install, maintain, and replace signs and bulletin boards as needed
