VENTANA WILD RIVERS PROPOSAL
The upper segments of both forks are publicly owned. There are private inholdings on both forks within the Forest boundary. None of these properties would be affected by designation. Recreational designation of the lower segment of the North Fork accommodates the Pico Blanco Boyscout Camp access road and would allow continued seasonal impoundment of the North Fork by the Camp, as long as the impoundment did not continue to harm the outstanding steelhead fishery. A portion of the Wild segment of the South Fork flows through an undeveloped area of Andrew Molera State Park. Wild designation of this segment is consistent with the state’s management of this portion of the Park.
