GWNF German River/FR 232 Access Issues

We decided to check out GWNF Forest Road 232 aka German River road this past weekend. This in the Crinders/Bergton area north of Harrisonburg. FR 232 is a major approach road to the Long Run system of forest roads. We were disappointed to find a big "No Trespassing- Private Road- Privately Maintained" sign on an overhead cable. Not wanting to get in a potential pissing contest with a property owner over what the maps showed as a public road we backed off and found a different way. I spoke to the North River Ranger District today about this. This is a known issue. It seems that a property owner disputes the public right of way through his property and has marked the road as private. I was advised by the Forest Service person it is a public road and that I could use it. They are not aware of the owner ever attempting to prosecute a user.

I am planning on going back but probably not until Loudoun Country spring break.

I am; however, planning on 3 day exploration of forest roads south of Reddish Knob this upcoming three day weekend.
