In most all forests, ML 1 roads have been "closed" since the early 90's. The catch is that cross country travel was allowed, so in reality they were closed, but still available for use. With the elimination of cross country travel, that will eliminate the use of those routes. Yes, they should be looked at for conversion to trails for the various classes, but most forests will NOT travel down that route at this time. We will probably have to fight that fight as the periodic "looksees" and updates are done.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS is in order for the Klamath Four Runners!!! Like Beth referred to, it is the policy of Region 6 to let the local club set the priorities and direction for negotiations with land managers. This is exactly how things are supposed to work. It is the local users who can most effectively state what needs to happen to serve their local community and we as supporting PNW members need to back them up. After all, it is the local club who has to live with the outcome. This policy also eliminates the possibility of conflicting messages being sent to the land managers.

We thank the Klamath Four Runners land use committee for their work with the Forest Service and look forward to supporting you throughout the TMP. Please keep all of us informed as to how we can help. Good Job!!!
