Remember to tread lightly...
 
It don't take much to give off-roaders a bad rep.

Forsyth County looks to ban mudding | www.wsbtv.com

Those are some certified idiots right there. Trashing a park like that should result in fines and hopefully they will be held accountable for the full cost of repairs.

I agree people doing it on land designed for something else should get fined. The first video looks like a mud park though. I can't imagine people are walking their dogs or jogging out in that mess even before the offroading began.

These "teens" should have their vehicles sold and given a Prius to drive. Dumb sh*ts.

Yeah, I think they were just trying to get some stock mudding footage from wherever that park is.

One of the first things I mentioned after joining the forum was that I will only wheel in legal areas. That's why we drive over an hour for our fun, because its legal. Not only should these dumb asses be given Prius' to drive and pay restitution, but also do work with the forest service to maintain legal areas like Beasley Knob.

I just looked at Google maps and called a friend that lives near there. That is the park in the video. The muddy area is for future parking. These punks destroyed a lot of the survey work that was done.

There's gotta be more to this story cause I wouldn't take my little brother to a dirt hill and tell him we are at the park. That's not a park, police must be bored in Forsyth

Sorry, but that is the wrong attitude. This IS a park, and adjacent area. Its not exactly out in the sticks. There is an area that while not really legal, people have wheeled on in the past without incident. Personally don't condone it but it was not a problem. These youngsters took it to the next level and encroached on actual park area.

This is why when you ask the question "is this a legal spot" and hear "been going here for years" .... stay away.

I live in Cumming and sure I wish there is place I could go hit some trails down the street. There isn't. You have to drive to the legal spots.

I don't live up there and maybe I came off a little strong I just figured a park would have grass and a slide or something

Uhhhhhh, that's called a playground. Modern parks have dog areas, walking trails, etc.

It does make us all look bad and this is why good riding places get shut down. We have a problem up here "north GA "with people bringing old mattresses,furniture and other junk and dumping it

Trailsnail 02-21-2013 09:12 PM

Amen.

Yeah, can't count on the media for displaying accuracy. Just like they showed a clearly established trail/path/road and called it something the trucks "carved".

Understood you don't know the area. Just given the fact of it's location anyone in the area should know it's likely not OK.

The important point being don't wheel there if you don't know it's a public road/area or have permission from a private land owner.

Oh, not to mention tearing up earth, doing donuts in your truck with people unsafely riding in the open bed and posting it on youtube.

I stand corrected if that is actually the park. It does just look like a random mud hole that we see at ORV parks.

While I agree that these kids need to have consequences for their actions, I think it is a shame that there are so few places for them to go. As a teenager, we had boocoos of trails around to ride on, mostly old logging roads and power lines. We were respectful of the land though.
Today, all are gated off. I understand why, but we tell kids to get off the X boxes and go outside, then give them nowhere to go. I do not have an answer but I do know that a lot of young'uns need to learn respect of others and their property.

The big open place you see in the video with the white pickup is a mudhole up on a hill behind the ACE hardware down the street from Windermere park. The place the cars are in the YouTube video is not the park but however is still private property. I live right down the street from there and I've thought about going but would never take that chance.
