Lets hope they dont. Its a fun trail! But I still think that the go-arounds isnt the reason they are after. Its the fact that Jeeps are using it, and they are over 1,000 lbs. They gated another trail in a near by town that is on the map as a road. Granted, the gate is left open, and I have driven right by an EPO coming out of there without any harassment. But I see what its coming down to. The "road" itself has no signs, but all the trails leading off it does. But soon enough, Im sure they will hang signs there too.

The 1,000 pound rule is only for trails. not roads As long as OFR is a road we are allowed to use it.

Dead wrong. There was TONS of trash near the entrance last time I was there (this past fall) and it was mostly empty beer bottles and six-pack cartons. My group did pick up whatever was easily accessible but there was a lot we didn't get to.

I was thinking the same thing... but then realized, he may have a newer, stock rig and as such, shouldn't attempt OFR yet.

True... It is the go arounds that give them even more ammunition to close it though.
and... if the state really had their way, 1000 pounders would be out of the state forests too... 15 years ago, one could take an ATV or MX bike in any of 22 state forests. That was only 15 years ago. Today, there are 3 state forests where OHV use is legal... Not difficult to see the direction that's headed.

Talk soon,

Or you could use the go arounds . . .

Just kidding. Some videos mentioned earlier in this thread appear to show Jeeps with 31's doing just fine.
