There is a trail that I love going to here in Va. It is part of the Jefferson National Forrest. I have not been out to verify this but appearently it has been "closed" and they have chains blocking the path. The rumor came from a local clubs treasurer. Anyway, the treasurer claims that his club has the only key that was released to the public. I know this club is in good standings with the Park Rangers as I have attended some meetings and listened to the Park Rangers speak at these meetings. The club does trail clean ups etc, which I give them props for that. However it is a Jeep only club. Now is it legal for a public trail to be closed off and a single key given to one club? It seems like if it was open it would have to be open to everyone. I have not verified that it is actually closed as it is about an hour and fifteen minute drive. I did however email the local Park Ranger supervisor division for input. I'm waiting to hear back from them and I wanted to post up here to see if I can get any advice or laws or anything that might help us (the public) out if this is indeed the case.
