Some of Southern California’s most beautiful off-highway trails are protected by the dedication of the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Volunteer Program and a partnership with the U.S. Forest Service that helps ensure safe and sustainable trails for the nature-loving public. Join the Southern California Mountains Foundation Off-Highway Vehicle Volunteer Program and experience the rewards of making a difference.

“Our volunteers take action and responsibility for the protection of our natural resources to help ensure sustainability, and in turn, the U.S. Forest Service gains a presence in the field, promoting and dispensing vital messaging and education to the public." Rick Lavello, Program Director
