Decision Notice issued for May Valley Non-Motorized Trails Project
SAN BERNARDINO, California, December 22, 2016 – Forest Service officials announced the release of the Decision Notice for the May Valley Non-Motorized Trails Project near Idyllwild, on the San Jacinto Ranger District.
The May Valley trails has been a long-term collaborative effort with Riverside County Park and Open-Space District, the hill communities, local groups, and the Forest Service. The collaborative effort promotes heathy recreation and creates a sustainable and interconnected, shared-use, non-motorized trail network that will complement local, regional, and national trails and day-use opportunities.
Equestrian riders will be able to ride from McCall Memorial Equestrian Park to Hurkey Creek Park, while enjoying scenic vistas. Bicyclists and hikers will be able to ride and hike a variety of trails suited to both the beginner as well as the experienced user.
Within the 5,500 acres analyzed in the May Valley area, Forest Officials are adopting 22 miles of unauthorized trails, constructing 2.5 miles of new trails, developing 2 trailheads, and rehabilitating 10.5 miles of unauthorized trails.
“I am very pleased to sign the decision today and express a huge thank you to everyone that has participated in the process,” said District Ranger Arturo Delgado. “The community and our staff are ready to initiate the project, and we anticipate beginning work in the spring,” added Delgado.

For many, our four-legged, friends are more than “pets,” they are family. As with any family member, they too deserve a day of celebration, dedicated to showing our love and gratitude for all they do.
“Dogs have both an outer and inner beauty, an ability to love and a spirit that connects with humans in a way that cannot be replicated by any other living thing,” said Colleen Paige, pet and family lifestyle expert and animal advocate.
National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th and was founded in 2004 by Colleen with a purpose of bringing attention to the plight of animals and encouraging adoption. RivCoParks will join the annual celebration and show support by honoring our furry companions and offering free admission for dogs on National Dog Day, Friday, August 26, 2016, at all regional parks where pets are permitted.
According to NationalDogDay.com, the day is meant to “celebrate all breeds, pure and mixed and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, either from public shelters, rescues and pure breed rescues.” To find out more on this National holiday and how to get involved, please visit NationalDogDay.com.
