The U.S. Forest Service and Hells Canyon Preservation Council have reached an agreement on the Sled Springs OHV (off-highway vehicle) Trails located near Enterprise. The 2012 Settlement Agreement, approved in federal court Jan. 6, will provide seasonal OHV trail riding opportunities while addressing environmental and wildlife concerns in the Sled Springs Area of Wallowa County, according to the Forest Service.

The 2012 Settlement Agreement together with the 2009 Sled Springs OHV decision, signed by Wallowa Valley District Ranger Ken Gebhardt, identify seasonal OHV riding trails while restricting OHV and other motorized uses to designated roads and trails as required by the Forest Service's Final Travel Management Rule. The limited seasonal use of the trails (May 15 through three days prior to the State of Oregon's archery season) was in response to environmental and wildlife concerns, Gebhardt said.
