NMRubicon Over half of the trails in the Lincoln National Forest in NM have been locked down, our forest is over grown, with 4 to 5 times the number of trees per acre than the water table can support. The "Friends of the Forest" group here would apparently rather see it all burn down rather than allow the intelligent management of the forest, and the abilty for all to share in this 800,000 acre resource. In my opinion, much of the destructive behavior I see can be attributed to too many people trying to utilize what few trails there are left, so many just say screw it and go make more ammunition for the anti's by tearing up a meadow, or creating a new trail. If they would open it up, and give us all some room, I think much of this attitude would die out. Even the 4 wheeler trails are being closed at a rapid rate.

One sure way to loose any debate, is to accuse the other side of being something less of a citizen than you are. I and many others, understand our oppositions point of view. I just disagree with them, as do many others. I am also optimistic that we will eventually prevail. I see evidence of this with our state forest system here in Pennsylvania.. More trails are opening up, the gates are beginning to come down.. Put up the good fight, those folks are just as much pro America as we are..

Tommyfly Man, where I live in socal I don't have anywhere to wheel. I live right up against a range of hills, but the nearest place to access them is a 15 minute drive on the freeway. Kinda rediculous

RadarRob2012 Strong stuff. I live in SoCal, and every time I go wheeling I pass by multitudes of roads closed by the USFS. All I can say is Tread Lightly on what we have left, or we won't have anywhere to wheel.

Tread Lightly Very informative video.

However, I urge people to take the comparison to fire management with caution.

I have personally worked on a fire crew. While there is very little that is low impact about mechanical thinning (the conditions in that video are legitimate), the health of the forest after a burn cycle and a couple of winters is a far improvement over previous conditions.

Just a .02

That said, please Tread Lightly! by staying on those designated routes and do your part by being involved in the management of your local recreation opportunities.

BAP this is another reason i want to turn my land into a 4wheelen playground and to keep it clean and safe for family wheelen ( no closed gates)..and just plain ole just for fun competions..

shrekfx Great and informative video. I know here in South Dakota in the Hills you get to a road that a map says open, but the gate will be closed saying it's closed. That kinda sucks.

One thing I dont like is that he used porn music.
