Exclamation Rubicon Trail Needs YOUR Help!

Via Email:

On Thursday, April 23rd the California Water Quality Control Board is having a public hearing in Rancho Cordova to finalize their decision on closing the Rubicon Trail.

JPFreek Adventure Magazine is asking each of you on behalf of the National Off-Road Association - National Off-Road Association - who are within driving distance of Sacramento to attend this important public hearing. Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts need to show the Water Board the overwhelming public support to keep the Rubicon Trail open year-round. NORA's goal is to have over (500) OHV enthusiasts present at this public hearing.

This is serious. On April 1st of this year, the United States Forest Service issued a 2-year temporary closure of the very popular Tellico OHV Area in North Carolina. Help Rubicon from turning into a Tellico type situation by showing your support on April 23rd.

Assemblyman Ted Gaines and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock's office will be in attendance, as well as Off-Road Hall of Famer, Mark A. Smith. Local Sacramento news media will also be covering this historic event.

Please call or email Erin Lara, Member Services Director at NORA to let her know if you are able to attend as we are trying to obtain a head count. She can be reached at (530) 333-1487, ext. 1 or If the Rubicon Trail is closed, even temporarily this go-around, this will not only set a precedent for the permanent future of the Rubicon but also every other publicly-owned land access point throughout the United States. THIS IS CRITICAL!

Meeting Place and Time

Location - 11020 Sun Center Drive # 200; Rancho Cordova, CA 95670

Date & Time - Thursday, April 23rd @ 12:30 PM

it's truly a shame that this is even a possibility. Any reason why this is happening? or is it just another one of those cases where a few bad wheelers make us all look bad?

I can't believe they can even do this. I mean this trail has a jeep named after it.
No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van

They are using "water quality" as the issue. Run-off, silt, impurities etc.................. I believe its the same way they hit Telico with a closure.
Just getting to work is an adventure.

What BS... they will spend tens of millions of dollars a year to maintain an interstate highway and not worry one iota about runoff or any other crap, but won't leave a natural trail open?

Get a noose ready and lets get rid of these shit heads in office. (that would be a figurative noose, not a literal one) Can't even exercise your 1st Amendment rights anymore.
