Welcome to the San Bernardino National

Forest Adopt-A-Trail Program


Maintaining Off Highway Vehicle Roads & Trails

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 .

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 shall not be included in reporting of hours.

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!.
