Good luck to you! I'd be interested in helping out if it ever came to organizing maintenance work on something like Bald Mountain Primitive Road/Jeep trail near Sherando. Lots of grade reversals (on the re-route) are blown through and water is just running down the road. Most people don't notice that sort of thing but start thinking like a trail designer or land manager and you'll see maintenance issues in many places.

I helped found Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club (CAMBC - Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club) and am still active in the club. Part of the reason for the mt bike club is trail work and advocating to keep existing trails in local parks and in the National Forest. I see similar need in the ORV community but no active local organization. The ORV definitely needs representation at Forest Service meetings and helping out maintaining the limited number of venues would help "politically".

Realistically, the "work" on a ORV road is too much to do with hand tools like we commonly do on mt bike trails. The club needs funding and land manager approval for a dozer/backhoe and acceptable operator. I've seen this happen with mt bike clubs, so it can be done. Such and effort should be larger than a local club and include Hburg, C'ville, Richmond etc. to get the member numbers and funding to really make things happen.
