Save Johnson Valley
Johnson Valley OHV in California is being considered for requisition to expand the United States Marine Corps training facilities, which would effectively eliminate public access to Johnson Valley's unrivaled OHV Mecca. Families and clubs have recreated in this area for many years with OHV�s, motorcycling, and ATV's along with competitive rock crawling and rock racing events which have been held there for more than a decade. The area is regularly used in the film industry. All uses combined bring significant rewards for the area economy. The Bureau of Land Management currently manages the Johnson Valley's varied landscape of steep red rocky mountains, rolling hills, open valleys, dry lake beds, dunes, and sandy washes. The main attraction for most visitors is family OHV recreation: trail-rides, competitive racing events, and general OHV free play. Johnson Valley sees hundreds of thousands of recreation days with users motorcycling, ATVing, 4x4ing, rallycrossing, camping, hiking, rock-hounding, and wildlife-watching. �It is ironic that the BLM has OHV users recreate responsibly by staying on marked trails and not having campfires at certain times of the year, but now they sell the same area to the Marines who will tear all over the area and conduct live fire drills�, said Todd Ockert, The United Four Wheel Drive Association Director of Environmental Affairs.
