State OHV Parks
San Diego & Imperial Counties

Urban Corps is applying for a State Parks OHV grant restoring habitat and installing barriers within multiple City of San Diego locations including Los Penasquitos, Otay Mesa and Black Mountain.

If you want to review the application or make comments on it go to

Urban Corps protects habitat at 18 open space preserves in Southern California through our Habitat Management Services Division. We assist wildlife agencies in the enforcement of habitat protection through unauthorized OHV monitoring, signage placement and ramp/jump removal.

Please help us protect local habitat by riding responsibly and only in our local designated OHV parks.

For further OHV information and resources, visit the OHV website.

Thank you!
