Welcome to the Trinity County Off-Highway Vehicle Trails website. The first website dedicated to OHV recreation opportunities in Trinity County, the Trinity OHV website is your guide to the riding and recreation opportunities Trinity County has to offer. Here you will find area information, links to riding resources and rider groups, as well as downloadable and interactive maps. Trinity County is home to stunning landscapes such as the Trinity Alps, Trinity Lake, and the Yolla Bolla Mountains. Off-trail, this area offers unique places to visit and rare historical sites that showcase its rich history. With 3,200 square miles of scenic views and beautiful forests, Trinity County offers great outdoor activities and plenty to do.
The best OHV opportunities in Trinity County are located in the vicinity of Hayfork on Shasta-Trinity National Forest lands. Trinity County offers a wide range of trails located in beautiful settings for the use of motorcycles, ATVs, 4 wheel drive vehicles, trail bikes, mountain bikes, and other non-motorized vehicle activities. Elevations range from 3,000 feet to 5,000 feet with a wide variety of topography, soil, and vegetation types. Off-Highway vehicle recreation is one of many uses allowed on public land within this area. There are also plenty of opportunities for camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain bike riding, horseback riding, and much more.
The Shasta-Trinity National Forest offers hundreds of miles of roads and trails for the off-highway vehicle enthusiast. Forest Service Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) display legal roads and trails open to motorized travel. Maps can be obtained at Forest Service offices or on-line at http://www.fs.usda.gov.
Please be considerate of all others you encounter and yield right-of-way to non-motorized recreationists.
About the Trinity OHV Project
Developed in partnership with The Watershed Center and the Forest Service, the Trinity OHV Project is part of an ongoing effort to promote OHV recreation in Trinity County while facilitating sustainable OHV trail use through community engagement, the promotion of legal riding, and long-term planning that minimizes the damage to the environment. The Trinity OHV Project includes the development of user-friendly maps of legal OHV routes throughout Trinity County, the creation of the Trinity OHV Trails website, and ground operations projects that will assess riding impacts, maintain trails, and repair and restore environmental damage. By providing user-friendly information that showcases legal routes and offers information about environmentally sensitive areas, we are working to serve the dual goals of minimizing environmental damage while promoting OHV recreation in Trinity County.
The Trinity OHV Project is funded by the California State Park Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Division, and is made possible through partnership and collaborative effort with The Forest Service.
