Sadly I think the parks that allowed for trails help give people an outlet for off roading... if they close them down, I think people will just find ways to do it anyway.

I received that as well. The update is . . .well, no update.

Except:
"The Department recognizes that ORV trails and riding are an important part of the Maryland outdoor recreation community and pledges to identify new and improved trail locations. Options include several privately owned sites with ‘ready to ride’ trail systems in place that could be purchased or leased by DNR and/or our partners to provide public ORV trail access. DNR is also considering several existing public land locations for inclusion in this new trail evaluation process."

Test rides anyone? It's a long shot, but I'm sending an email . . .

The leader of the 'stakeholders' group is Paul Peditto:

i dont get it, they are worried about some creek or stream right? why not just build a metal bridge for those crossings?

I am guessing theres more to it... but this is just annoying...

I think it's 2 things - runoff from the trails and politics.

And money. There was a caveat in there that stated that the property was also used for logging.

GREAT NEWS!!!

Just received an email from Paul Peditto:

As mentioned in our last message, we intend to meet quarterly with a goal of identifying at least one new trail system in the next twelve months. This will require several on-site meetings in the field at locations worthy of consideration.

This workgroup will include non-riders but our focus will be on development of new ORV trail riding opportunities so please keep that in mind as it will mean a majority of members will be trail riders (including larger street-legal 4x4's, atvs, side-by-sides, dirt bikes -- dual-purpose and otherwise; and snowmobiles).

Thank you one and all of your input and patience thus far; and thank you in advance to our workgroup members for their time and attention. I anticipate our first meeting will occur in July so please reply by the end of this week so we can begin planning for our first visit."
There's about 18 people from all different ends of the offroad spectrum making up this committee. I'll keep you guys updated as far as the next step, whether it be labor while cutting trails or answering polls and writing letters.

Thanks for everything you have done so far. Hopefully we'll see on OHV park in Md soon.

I doubt it, seeing as how it is July. You could always call the ranger's office and see if they'll pro-rate it since they closed the park in March/ April.

ORV Trails Status - Updated

Effective immediately, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
has permanently closed three of the State's off-road vehicle (ORV) trails;
the Green Ridge Trail at Green Ridge State Forest, Chandler Trail at
Pocomoke State Forest, and Poplar Lick Trail at Savage River State Forest.

These trails had been temporarily closed pending the results of a forest
certification audit. The decision is based on the results of environmental
assessments conducted by the Department and the results of our recent forest certification audit. That audit completed last week is part of the State's
effort to receive dual certification for all three western Maryland State
Forests - a move that will protect the $950 million western Maryland forest
products industry, which employs 9,200 people.

Or did they edit an old press release?
