Public Access Daniel Boone National Forest_Need your Help-MUST SEE THIS BEFORE WEDNES

I received this email tonight from the Southern Four Wheel Drive Association representative Jeffery Dozier, concerning Land use and access in the Daniel Boone National Forest near Slade, KY. This is the Sand Lick area. If you can support this please do so.


So the main road that goes through Sand Lick and also up to Big Bend Ridge is county road 1057 Sand Lick Road (yes, the Narrows Road!). The USFS illegally closed and damaged this road in 2006 without the county consent. The county judge executive sent the county road crew in last Tuesday to reopen the road, which they did. On Friday, the USFS illegally retrenched the road and also posted a ranger to guard the county road. This morning, the ranger threatened to arrest the county road workers who showed up to reopen their road along with the judge if he showed his presence.

The judge has proof the road is county road 1057 Sand Lick Road and also that the documentation the USFS used to close and damage it was filled with errors, including stating the road was not a county road.

On Wednesday April 3rd at 9AM, the judge is leading his county road crew to reopen it once and for all.


Sand Lick Road is a few miles down Big Bend Road just outside Zachariah, KY (41301) which is in between Slade KY and Beattyville, KY.

Please spread the word and help show the public is not going to allow our access to be taken illegally. Be there to support our county and access to our forests in general. There are hundreds of miles of county roads in the national forest, this is the first of many we are taking back from illegal closures.

Judge exec canceled the opening due to some last minute legal questions. Now I understand a third party environmentalist group is protesting. I don't know yet if they have standing. I think the County is in the clear to open it if they resolve this latest protest. We will see.
