Uwharrie trails and trash!

I go to Uwharrie quite often and during my last trip I noticed more trash and beer cans then ever. Uwharrie is a beautiful place and quite frankly they are very lenient on their alcohol policy. If it continues to go on this trend I am afraid they may not be lenient any longer. Let's police our own,we have a much better community then this. Thanks everyone and Semper Fi!

I really believe you are preaching to the choir here. I know that our club members practice Tread Lightly and are constantly going to work days. We pickup trash along the trails as we go.

The biggest offenders I see are the ATV crowd. Alcohol on the trails, blazing new trails and just don't care in general. I know that Group Camp is now posted no alcohol due to non Jeepers destroying things and leaving trash all over the place. Man put your trash in the dumpster provided!

Now before anyone gets their panties in a bunch, I will admit that there are many good ATV'ers and there are bad ORV'ers. My experience is that the ATV crowd has less manners.

Hopefully, now that LEO Foote has his new side by side, he can get out and enforce the rules more and stop some of this nonsense.

Have to agree with the atv issues. I see this a LOT<. The other group that is even more an issue with trash is shooters. They bring out trash to shoot then leave it. 99% of our clean ups are these groups of people. Its a never ending story.

Our trails here are all public lands. Our clubs here all have worked very hard to keep our trails open. Red tape to the moon, to adopt a trails. dealing with BLM, state trust and USF is never easy and these issues are pointed at all users. the bad news is like school ground rules today they punish all for the deeds of the stupid.

to tell you truth i think in the end we will loose. Jeep clubs can only do so much and are a minority of the whole. When i look at club memberships its mostly older people. There is not enough young people interested in clubs with dues, meetings and yes WORK... sad really. I can see clubs breaking up as the older guys die off, no one wants to step up. The clubs i belong to are all NON profits. So all they money earned with Jamboree events poker runs. the money goes to charities and to lobbyist to save are open spaces. Right now we have 12 new trails that we have been working hard with BLM to adopt. From doing GPS runs with them as shot guns riders. then the years of red tape. see like more work than work was......

Our club, fortunately, is growing.

All of the 4x4 clubs that frequent Uwharrie are active with the Forest Service in helping to get things done and in fact, with the generosity of an anonymous ORV patron, the Forest Service has been able to secure new land for a planned new trail. Going to take some time as Doc mentioned about that red tape but at least at Uwharrie, we are gaining and not losing.

Great news! Thanks everyone. I thought they were opening a new trail along the lake but haven't seen any other news on it. Glad to hear one is in the approval process.
