A little help could make this happen!
Due in part to NC4x4 member response to the surveymonkey survey, Ben Farmer, a planning Consultant from Nashville who has been hired to develop a management plan for this area, will recommend that the Doe Mountain Recreation Authority allow "full size" OHV vehicles such as Toyota trucks on the Doe Mountain OHV trails. This is a positive development but not a done deal.
DO THIS IF YOU WANT TO RIDE DOE MOUNTAIN!
Go here: DMRA - Volunteer
Enter your information. In the "Comment" box say that you are a Jeep or Toyota truck (whatever) driver and that you encourage them to open access for "full size" OHV vehicles. Tell them how often you plan to go, how much money you plan to spend (gas, food, motel, fees, parts, camping supplies, etc), how many people you will bring. Basically show them the economic impact of allowing full size OHV use. Mention that it has been estimated that the town of Murphy, NC experienced a $4 million dollar loss in economic impact as a result of the Upper Tellico OHV area closure!
