Dunes plan opens old areas, closes others
June 21, 2013 10:28 PM

BY CHRIS McDANIEL - @YS_CMCDANIEL

Although the fees are expected to go up later this year for duners at the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA), sand sport aficionados will have a vast amount of newly opened acreage in certain portions of the dunes to explore with their off-highway vehicles (OHVs).

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently approved an updated ISDRA Management Plan which includes amendments to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan to open up about 40,000 acres of land to OHV usage. That will bring the total amount of acres accessible by OHVs to about 165,000 acres. Only about 125,000 acres had previously been accessible to motorized vehicles.

However, other portions of the dunes which had previously been open to OHV usage will be closed to motorized vehicles.
