Default New area to wheel ?

Well maybe. The Pacific ranger district in Forks Wa. is proposing a new OHV area mainly aimed for quads and such. I had a long talk with Tim Davis the project leader and NEPA specialist and we discussed the need for 4x4 opportunities out there. Much of this proposed system is using existing and abandoned roads which would be a perfect fit for 4x4 vehicles. They hadn't really looked at us as a user but they have my attention now And I theirs. I'm in the process of doing some research on the exact numbers of trail miles the quads already have on the peninsula compared to our one legal trail at Sadie creek. We need to jump on this as the deadline is coming up on May 21. I will be posting some sample comments in the next few days. We cant let this opportunity for new trails slip by us so be prepared to write. Thanks Jim

Attached ( I hope ) are the scoping letter map and the MUVM map for the forest.

Once again this forum wont let me load PDFs with maps and such
