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.

Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District (RivCoParks) is celebrating back- to-back victories for 2016, with four major awards recently announced from four separate organizations for the Box Springs Mountain Reserve Comprehensive Trails Master Plan.
The plan includes an inventory and assessment of current trails within the reserve, possible linkages to surrounding trail systems, proposed new trails, and linkages to Moreno Valley, Riverside, and Highgrove.
“The plan was only made possible through a unique partnership that brought everyone together with a common goal: how to develop a comprehensive and sustainable system,” said Scott Bangle, RivCoParks’ general manager. Partners included the Friends of Riverside Hills, City of Riverside, Riverside County Transportation Commission and the City of Moreno Valley.
Awards received include the 2016 Merit Planning Award from the State of California’s Trails and Greenways Conference, the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the American Planning Association. The District also received notification that the plan will receive the Planning Initiative Award at the National Association of County Park and Recreation Officials’ Annual Conference to be held in Long Beach, California in July.
