Calif. off-road trail honored by BFGoodrich
Michelin North America Inc.’s BFGoodrich Tires honored the Dusy-Ershim OHV Trail in Sanger, Calif., over the weekend as one of the 2011 Outstanding Trails.
For the first time ever, fans in the off-road community were given the power to vote for their favorite off-road trail, and Dusy-Ershim came out on top.
BFGoodrich Tires presented a grant of $4,000 to the club. The grant will be used to preserve the scenic trail and continue conservation efforts for one of America’s most beautiful areas for off-roading.
Dusy-Ershim OHV Trail in the Sierra National Forest offers 33 miles of high mountain meadows, creeks, six natural lakes, unique granite mountains, cliffs and panoramic views at 10,200 feet. The trail is a major challenge for drivers, and having advanced driving skills is highly recommended.
Dusy-Ershim does not cross any roads or other OHV trails. It also has many foot trails, lakes and creeks that are accessible to walkers and hikers.
The BFGoodrich Tires Outstanding Trails program was established in 2006 to raise awareness for responsible use and preservation of off-road trails while providing aid in the trails’ conservation efforts. Through 2010, the Outstanding Trails program has recognized 24 off-road trails and 24 clubs across 16 states, and two trails in Canada. The program has provided more than $90,000 in grants in support of the various trails conservation efforts.
