It seems they are going to close down the trails around Clayton, OK. The timber company that owns the area is going to sell the land. Check out fwd-fwd webpage for more info as the week progresses. To those planning rides there, you better check up on it. Remember there is still a couple of areas in OK (Poteau and Disney) to wheel. Boy, it keeps getting harder and harder to wheel. Following is a couple of messages from the tx4x4 list with info on it. Good luck Javier ---------------- From tx4x4, >..., anybody else going to Clayton this weekend or in October for the Oktober Trailfest/SWFWDA Fall Quarterly (hosted by FWD-FWD). I'd check with the hosts before making that drive. It has been confirmed that all the main trails (near the charcoal plant sections and off Wildwood Acres) have been closed to all recreation by the owners, Georgia Pacific. They are looking to sell that section of 4000 acres and have plans underway to do an environmental impact study on the area (common practice before a large timber area land sale). They were very unaware of the quality and quantity of four wheeling going on in the area. The area manager (I think his name is Curtis something) ordered the main road from the now closed charcoal plant to be bar ditched to help deter access. Rumor had it that the guy who runs the Indian Mounds campground dug those ditches, but he did not. It was handled by Georgia Pacific. The trails affected in that area included everything except Survey Line and BusLine way out in the Honobia Creek Wildlife Management Area (which is Hancock owned property). Georgia Pacific has offered to sell the land to Hancock, but they don't seem to have interest. It looks like our only real hope to keep this land open, is to purchase it for well over 1 million dollars. Perhaps somebody can talk the local town into a joint venture or something, but I doubt they can work with that kind of debt. As big as FWD-FWD is, we don't have anywhere near that kind of money. Maybe the state of Oklahoma, or the local county (Pushmataha) would be interested in an OHV park. If this were Texas, the Texas Motorized Trails Coalition (TMTC at www.texasmotorizedtrails.com) would jump at the chance to secure federal funds to secure this land. However, I don't know if Oklahoma's mutli-use groups are as organized. I know the group exists, I just don't remember seeing anything from them since a meeting in Oklahoma City about this time last year. Lance Morin Ft. Worth - Dallas Four Wheel Drive (FWD-FWD) FWD-FWD is committed to having the meeting. Right now the schedule remains the same. A final decision will be held by COB Friday. Expect the FWD-FWD website to be updated by the weekend. If it is not in Clayton, it will be in Gilmer. If you put a correct phone number on your registration, you will be notified via phone of the change.
