Description: Off Highway Vehicles - OHVThe only designated route for OHV travel in the Modoc National Forest is the Modoc Back Country Discovery Trail.


Modoc Back Country Discovery Trail
The Modoc National Forest segment of the Back Country Discovery Trails is about 200 miles long with another 42 miles of Alternate (more challenging) Trails. Most of the Modoc Back Country Discovery Trails system is single lane and unpaved. Ultimately, this statewide system will provide a network of interconnected off-highway vehicle roads from Mexico to Oregon.


Trip Particulars: Starts on FS Rd 48N21 at the California/Oregon border southeast of Lakeview, OR, and terminates at the junction of FS Rd 43N48 and FS Rd 15 located at the Klamath/Shasta-Trinity NF boundary.


Length of Drive: 200 miles


Minimum Driving Time: 15-20 hours. Plan on at least a couple days and camp out along the way--it will be much more enjoyable


Best time of Year: June 1 through October 15--not plowed during winter months.


Elevation of Drive: Approximately 4300' to 7600'.


Road closure Information: The roads are usually closed by snow from November through May.


Discovery Points: Twenty-two (22) Discovery Points will be designated along the route. When completed each will have an interpretative sign and other information to assist the traveler in enjoying the California Back Country.


Route Description: The trail passes through three of the four Ranger Districts on the Forest and can be roughly divided into three separate portions.


The eastern portion of the Trail passes through higher elevations (up to 7600') which encompass mixed conifers, lodgepole pine, numerous meadow systems, and many lakes and creeks. It passes through the community of Davis Creek. Points of interest are: Cave and Lily Lakes, Mt. Vida Vista Point, Fort Bidwell, the Highgrade National Recreation Trail, the Rainbow Obsidian Mines, Sugar Hill Lookout, and Lake City. Three campgrounds are on or near the primary trail.


The central portion of the trail lies primarily on the Devil's Garden Plateau and is fairly flat at 4300' to 5400'. This is predominantly an eastside setting with ponderosa pine stands, sagebrush, juniper, rock- flat grasslands, and meadows. There are numerous reservoirs, lakes, and wetlands. The points of interest are: Goose Lake, Jane's Reservoir, Blue Mountain Lookout, Reservoir C, Big Sage Reservoir, and Fairchild Swamp. Four campground is near the trail.


The western portion passes through the Doublehead Ranger District in the higher elevation's (up to 7000ft) lodgepole pine/red fir forests. The points of interest are: Timber Mountain Lookout, the Lava Beds National Monument, Medicine Lake Glass Flow, Medicine Lake, Arnica Sink, Glass Mountain Geologic Area, Little Mt. Hoffman Lookout, and Little Glass Mountain. Four campgrounds are on or near the trail.


Nearest Consumer Information Center: Modoc National Forest, Doublehead Ranger District, Tulelake, CA; Warner Mtn. Ranger District, Cedarville, CA; Modoc National Forest Headquarters, Alturas, CA.


Traveler Services: Available in Davis Creek and Tionesta--lodging and services before or after your trip in Lakeview, OR, McCloud, Alturas and Cedarville, CA.





Most roads and trails outside the SWW are open to use by all users. The Highgrade National Recreation Trail and the Blue Lake National Recreation Trails are closed to motorized use. The Red Tail Rim Trail is also closed to motorized use.


Legal:
If your vehicle is street-legal and carries a license, you have access to all open highways, roadways, and OHV routes within the National Forests unless they are posted "closed". If you have a vehicle which only carries an off-highway registration you are restricted to Forest Service gravel and dirt roads on the Modoc National Forest. Forest roads and trails pass through both public and private lands. Please respect the rights of private landowners and other posted lands.


All vehicles that are operated on public lands must be registered with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The registration fee is set by the State of California, and is valid for a two-year period. The OHV fund is used for acquisition of new OHV areas, development and operation of existing OHV areas, enforcement of the rules and regulations, and protection of the natural resources.


DMV will issue a Green or Red Sticker for off-road vehicles. Vehicles that can be operated both on- and off-highway will be given a street-legal license.


OHV Registration Requirements
In order to operate any type of motorized vehicle off-road on public land, you must have one of the following:


Street-Legal License Plate: If you want to operate a 4-wheel drive vehicle or dual-purpose motorcycle on-road and off-road, you must have a street-legal license plate.


The Green Sticker Or Red Sticker: If you are going to operate a motorized vehicle off-road only, you must have either a Green Sticker or a Red Sticker that has been issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Green Sticker allows vehicles to operate on public land all year. The Red Sticker is for motorcycles and ATVs manufactured after January 1, 1997 that do not meet the emission standards established by the California Air Resources Board. If the vehicle has a 3 or a C in the eighth position of the Vehicle Identification Number, then it does not meet the emission standards and should be issued a Red Sticker. The Red Sticker is exactly the same as the Green Sticker except that these vehicles can only be operated during certain times of the year. To find out when you can operate your vehicle, call the specific riding area that you want to visit or you can look it up on our web site at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/.
