Target shooting resumes at Orosco Ridge range

   Orosco Ridge Recreational Target Shooting Area (Orosco Ridge) re-opened to target shooting on Friday Oct. 9. Because of a favorable change in temperatures and fuel moisture conditions, Orosco Ridge is open, but it may be closed in the future if high fire danger conditions return, said Joan Friedlander, district ranger for the Palomar Ranger District.   
   There is no longer a combination lock at the entrance gate. Those using the area are asked to  close the gate behind them when entering and leaving. Because a closure may happen again, the public is encouraged to ensure the area is open before heading out to target shoot.  This information is available online at www.fs.fed.us/r5/cleveland (click on “current conditions”) or call the Palomar Ranger District Office at 760-788-0250.
   Forest officials remind visitors that fireworks are never allowed on the Cleveland National Forest and spark arrestors are always required for all off-highway vehicles, chainsaws and other equipment.   
   Illegal activity may be reported by calling the Cleveland National Forest Dispatch, which is open every day 24 hours at 619-557-5262. Dial 911 for immediate law enforcement assistance, especially in cases of life-threatening or medical emergencies.
   The Orosco Ridge target shooting area is in the Palomar Ranger District in the Cleveland National Forest and encompasses approximately 500 acres along Orosco Ridge Road (FS Road 12S03) in Pamo Valley.
