There are recreational opportunities which are oriented toward foot, bicycle, and equestrian traffic and include trails, roads, and picnic areas. Limited camping may be permitted if consistent with Forest objectives. Integrate recreation management, forestry education, resource protection and examples of timber harvesting so as to demonstrate how they can be compatible.
Unless specifically authorized, the activities that are prohibited include fishing, the use of motorized vehicles, shooting, hunting, camping, fires, and night time use.
SDSF is also a thriving place for mountain bike riding. The new Flow Trail, which was dedicated in May of 2015, is considered a world-class mountain biking experience. SDSF staff will continue to achieve the very challenging goal of balancing recreation, forestry research and education and timber harvesting demonstrations while continuing to provide watershed protection and restoration.
The 26th anniversary celebration provides a unique opportunity to see first hand how this is being done and to meet some of the many researchers who have completed work on SDSF.
