I was trying for a while to get a hold of some rangers, but I think the recent fires, and flooding have made it a little harder than normal. I did talk to a buddy at the DOW a few days ago, and he said the same thing. Unfortunately, its not on the top of their priority list at the moment. They closed a few of the trails already for the winter season, which is odd, because they typically don't close the ones that they did. I don't know if its an erosion problem, or if its something else. The problem here in Colorado is that we have so many outside visitors (not that its bad in any way), but some of those guys leave stuff out on trail, or tear things up pretty good. This year, deer hunting, we saw a few trucks with out of state plates tear right past a "no entry, erosion control area" sign. I got plate numbers, and the rangers handled it. But I've seen more and more of that stuff happening. Its just a real bummer that our trails seem to be closing at a rapid rate, and nobody has come up with any solutions to solve it. Thanks for the info though, and I suppose I'll just keep trying. My wife and I are looking into joining a local club. So maybe I can talk with some of the guys and see what we can come up with. Winter is only a few months, so I want to be ready to hit the ground running when wheelin' season comes back around again. If anybody comes out here to Colorado to wheel, you're more than welcome...just remember, have fun, AND STAY THE TRAIL!
