The Fort Sage OHV Area is located in Doyle, California. It’s 45 minutes from Susanville, California and 45 minutes from Reno, Nevada. (Music) It’s a wonderful area for OHV recreation managed
by the Bureau of Land Management and it’s partially funded through the California State Parks Off-Highway Vehicle grant program. (Music) The trails here at Fort Sage range from extremely
easy to extremely technical such as the Widowmaker. The Area is primarily utilized for off-highway
vehicle use however there is camping, hunting, hiking, bird watching,
equestrian use and there is also grazing that takes place in the Fort Sage OHV Area. (Music) So since 2009 we have been receiving California
State Parks Off-Highway Vehicle Grant funding. It has really helped improve the area.
The facilities have been upgraded. We’ve been able to restore some illegal hill climb areas
and also do a lot of trail maintenance to make the
area a lot more enjoyable for users. (Music) Lassen County is a wonderful place to come.
It’s got a lot of other recreational opportunities. The Bizz Johnson Trail is a nationally recognized
non-motorized trail. Eagle Lake is wonderful for camping, fishing
and boating. (Music) Not only is there the Fort Sage Off-Highway
Vehicle Area, but there is also the Rice Canyon Off-Highway Vehicle Area. It’s an open area. Its 105 acres and its just about 10 minutes out of Susanville, California.
It’s an excellent place to take your bike and ride some steep hill climbs, take your
kids out and teach them how to ride. (Music) It’s really important that visitors respect
wildlife and plant species. Stay on the roads and trails and not create new
unauthorized trails. (Music) For your next off-highway vehicle adventure
come to the Fort Sage OHV Area. (Music)
