Welcome to the San Bernardino National

Forest Adopt-A-Trail Program

Maintaining Off Highway Vehicle Roads & Trails

4x4, Motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile and UTV (ROV) clubs join forces with the USDA Forest Service and businesses to maintain and repair OHV trails in the San Bernardino National Forest assuring they remain open for public access.

Is your OHV or 4x4 Club

interested in becoming an

Adopt-A-Trail Club? Contact Greg Hoffman


or call 909-615-0475

Are you interested in joining an Adopt-A-Trail Club?  Go to Trails and Clubs (above) and click on underlined club name on the list to see info about the club

NEW: If you’re not in a club but want to help, contact Ted here. We’re going to try to come up with a program for you.

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.

Trail info and maps may eventually be available on  the San Bernardino National Forest’s website .For info on the club, click on the club name, then follow the link to the club web site

What’s Happening in Adopt-A-Trail
Next AAT meeting:  June 15th. Sorry, the April 20th meeting had to be postponed. It will be at the Corona Sizzler: 6pm dinner, 7 to 9pm meeting at 1461 Rimpau Avenue, Corona - just off Magnolia and the I 15.
Minutes of the January 20th, 2015, meeting are now posted on the AAT Meeting Notes page. Many thanks again to Phillip Beidelman of Waywegos for taking these notes.

Revised Hours Credit Rules:
1. If you plan to work on a trail other than your own adopted one, please FIRST contact Greg to see if work is already planned by others or has already been done. If work is needed, Greg can inform you of the Trail Maintenance Plan requirements and let you know of any recent developments.
2. The maximum allowable for any administrative work done in conjunction with one work day is 5 hours.
3. Travel time will be limited to actual time with a maximum of 3 hours each way for any participant. Anyone traveling from out of state or a great distance will only be allowed the 3 hours each way.
These new rules have been adopted because there have been some questions. We hope this clears this up.
And when doing AAT work on your trail or another one that’s been approved, don’t forget to post a report on AAT Yahoo Groups AND cc to Angela: angcook@pacbell.net We think many hours may not be getting reported and all hours benefit the program!.
