December 24, 2014

December 23, 2014

Mono official eyeballing Adventure Trails

December 22, 2014

Mono County Supervisor Tim Fesko of Coleville is looking into creating a combined-use route system for northern Mono that’s similar to the Adventure Trails route system being proposed in Inyo County,
Northern Mono County’s Antelope Valley would be an ideal location for such a trail network, Fesko said, since it already hosts a popular ATV Jamboree that attracts about 200 visitors to the area each year to experience guided tours of the area’s backcountry trails.
