Unfortunately, most people that know about it are too stupid to learn what parts of the trail are legit. They just assume if it looks like a trail it must be legal and proceed to drive over closed private property. Its only a matter of time before the town gets tired of trespassing complaints from the abutting landowners and shut it down.

It would be nice if somebody that lives in the area stepped up to the plate and tried to cultivate a relationship with the neighbors. Maybe some more land could be opened up . . .
