Day Use Areas in Dog Valley and Peavine Areas #ORMS-2926

Commenting on This Project

The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s Carson Ranger District seeks public comment for 30 days on a proposal to convert a few areas in and around the Peavine and Dog Valley areas, northwest of Reno, Nevada, to day use only. Due to resource damage as well as public health and safety concerns, these designated areas would be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily. In addition, disperse camping and campfires would be prohibited. The District is recommending a half-mile radius from the areas listed below be designated as day use only. • Dog Valley Road (Forest Service Road 31002): Forest Boundary (Near Verdi, NV) and Forest Boundary (Near Bordertown Casino & RV in North Reno, NV) • Dog Valley Summit One Staging Area (Off of Forest Service Road 31002 near Forest Service Roads 31027 and 31074.) • East Keystone Trailhead • Hoge Road Trailhead • Horizon Hills Trailhead • Las Brisas Trailhead • Peavine Road (Off of N. Virginia St.): Forest Boundary (North Reno, NV) • Raleigh Heights Trailhead • Red Metal Trailhead For a map, Please visit

The Forest Service values public participation. Communications from the public regarding this project, including commenters' names and contact information, will become part of the public record. Comments, including anonymous comments, will be accepted at any time. However, comments posted after the close of a designated comment period may not be able to be given full consideration.
