San Gabriel Canyon OHV Area has implemented a timed ticket reservation system in order to better manage high visitation demand. Tickets are issued per vehicle. Two types of tickets are available, Primary Vehicle, and Secondary Vehicle. A Primary Vehicle is any vehicle driven into the OHV area under its own power. A secondary vehicle is any vehicle trailered or hauled into the OHV area by a primary vehicle. Secondary vehicle tickets are only valid when purchased in conjunction with a primary vehicle ticket purchase.
