Los Padres NF - The Los Padres Conservation and Recreation Act of 2012 (H.R. 4109) provides for the designation of Ballinger Canyon and Mount Pinos as OHV Areas.
In addition, the legislative language is clear that there “…shall be no net loss of recreational values, including off-highway vehicle recreational values…” in the two areas and sections 401 and 403 in H.R. 4109 adds particular roads and trails to the Los Padres National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map and call for a feasibility study on the construction of specified new trails.
