This is the start of all forests having to do the same thing. All members need to show up and scream for trail opportunities, and less maintained level 2 roads to be kept open. Otherwise you will have only ML 4 and 5 roads left. Translation, lane and a half or two lane gravel and paved roads only, and very few of those.
The "science" will show that only foot traffic is what studies show is the most important. (notice that the first one is at REI, the only non-public building on the schedule)
