    there are a lot of area's that were opened that the enviromentalists have recently gotten closed. however, I believe these wilderness area's should be protected. I don't know how many of you live close enough to the wilderness area's to actually use them.

    there is a lot of forest land that is not wilderness area, and plenty for us off-road enthusiasts. however, it is also nice to still have area's that are not easy to access so everybody doesn't go there. it's nice to be able to see nature in it's element, and still have better fishing area's because they are not accessible.

    if every place is easily accessible then a lot of things will change, and not neccessarily for the positive. give us the area's that have been closed off, but leave the wilderness area's as they are.

    all right - I'll be honest... I believe this way mostly for the better fishing... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The way they make it sound will get us in trouble. We need to protect historical areas and most wheelers and clubs know this.

    And I wonder how quickly the 'new' people to off-roading will f' up some monument or feature......

    the problem never has been the true off-roaders... it's the morons that ruin it for all of us. how many teenagers can you see taking advantage of this & heading into the wilderness area's on their motorbikes? they already get visited a lot on snow machines in the winter.

    Last spring alot of the trails in the Black Hills National Forest got blocked off. I'd really like to see them all be reopened. Mainly so I can see where they go. I enjoy exploring the hills looking for old ghost towns, and miner sites.
