Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) recreation is just one of the many uses allowed on National Forest lands. The Mighty 190 region offers many opportunities for OHV recreationists.
Porterville OHV Track
Located just outside of town, this public motocross park features (4) separate tracks that range from an ATV, peewee, main and youth track. There is a large parking area with restrooms, picnic areas and a handful of shady spots. The tracks are open for day use only and hours are seasonal, so check the park hotline at (559) 782-7541 before heading out.
Tule River / Hot Springs
The Tule River/Hot Springs RD OHV recreation opportunity offers use of approximately 300 miles of unpaved designated roads within the boundaries of the Giant Sequoia National Monument. These roads provide access to dispersed camping and fishing opportunities over approximately two-thirds of the Giant Sequoia National Monument as well an opportunity to visit a number of giant sequoia groves. Outside of the monument boundary, there are approximately 5 miles of OHV trail-bike trail. Vehicle use that may currently use these designated unpaved monument roads are 4-wheel drive, dual-sport motorcycle and ATVs.
Forest roads are typically open from mid-May to mid-October of each calendar year depending on weather conditions. Acceptable weather conditions allow district roads to be opened earlier and stay open longer.
