The official name of this system will be the Ochoco Summit OHV system as it is located on the Ochoco NF near Big Summit Prairie. It may be a start in the area, but it is a pathetic start. The trails committee here is reviewing the scoping documents. We were also members of the forest service travel management working group who develop the initial plan, so we are comparing the proposed action to those initial ideas. As the proposed action stands right now, the Class II trails are predominately shared use roads. The trail heads and staging areas are a great deal of distance from town and there are no Class II trails connecting to the highway on the west side. We will have to travel about 10-15 miles on shared use roads to reach our "designated" shared use road "trails". Pathetic. The committee will post specific talking points next week.
