An area near Dorland Mountain Arts Colony off Highway 79 South is now off limits to recreational gun users, according to a public announcement Tuesday from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Southwest Station.

Dorland Mountain Arts Colony provided this photo of a makeshift target shooting area on the private property of the artists' retreat near Temecula. Sheriff's officials have warned local gun enthusiasts that the area is off limits and those who enter are trespassing.
Dorland Mountain Arts Colony provided this photo of a makeshift target shooting area on the private property of the artists' retreat near Temecula. Sheriff's officials have warned local gun enthusiasts that the area is off limits and those who enter are trespassing.

Citizens were advised in a public announcement Wednesday that an area near the Dorland Mountain Arts Colony just outside Temecula that has been used in the past for recreational shooting is now off limits.

The area, an unmaintained dirt road extension south of Pauba Road at the intersection of Highway 79 South, has been deemed private property, said Riverside County sheriff's Lt. Matthew Aveling in a news release. Those who enter the land are in violation of state and county criminal trespassing laws, he said.

"The dirt extension leads to an area utilized for recreational shooting," Aveling said. "Historically, this has been perceived as an area located on land under the authority of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The public has utilized this area to target shoot believing their activities were being done lawfully on BLM controlled land which allows for public access and the lawful discharge of firearms."

The Southwest Sheriff's Station conducted extensive research into the matter based on noise complaints from citizens in the area, Aveling said.

"A cooperative effort between BLM, the county of Riverside, Dorland Arts Colony and the Riverside County Sheriff's Department has revealed through Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping that the area currently utilized is situated on private property," Aveling said in the public announcement.

Dorland Mountain Arts Colony Manager Jill Roberts told Patch Wednesday she has worked closely with sheriff's deputies for the past several months on the issue.

"They have been very responsive," Roberts said.

She described the Colony, which encompasses 300 acres of property, as a nonprofit organization that provides a retreat for artists and writers seeking quiet and solitude. Artists can rent cottages for a week or several months, she said.
