I actually called the FS office and spoke with Doug.
He stated that the comment above was "incorrect

He said what was stated is "The Forest Service is facing a 10%reduction in funding for the next 5 years and that they will be looking at trails with the least amount of usage."
I asked how they would determine what trails would be closed due to "lack of use"
They plan on having a "comment period" to determine who uses what trails when. This will not only be an issue for ORV, but snowmobilers, single track riders.
I told him I was a soon to be displaced wheeler
Word is out, so plan on some good representation from our community.
