Your favorite trails may already be officially closed. Even though there is no sign or gate at the beginning of a trail, it still may be illegal for you to drive there. If you are caught there you may be cited with misdemeanor charges and fined. Unless you consult a GPS and a current Motor Vehicle Use Map at each and every turn, you won’t know if it is legal to be there or not

Congress has given the US Forest Service the task of closing as many Forest Roads as possible to reduce the costs of maintaining the roads. According to 36 CFR 112.5(b) : “For each national forest, national grassland, experimental forest, and any other units of the National Forest System (§212.1), the responsible official must identify the minimum road system needed for safe and efficient travel and for administration, utilization, and protection of National Forest System lands.”

The Huron-Manistee National Forest managers have begun that process. The notification to the public can be found here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/hmnf/n...STELPRD3823719

That means, soon, it will be illegal to drive on even more of the Two Track trails in the Huron or the Manistee National Forests than it is now.

I am asking you to follow this link to Why the US Forest Service should not close more Two Track Trails or other Forest Service roads.

If you agree with any of those points in that thread, and feel the Michigan Two Tracks should remain open to the public, please take action on those feelings. Please read Why the Forest Service is doing what they are doing. Please click on How you can help keep these trails open in less than 5 minutes more of your time.

It is important to act soon. Comments will only be accepted till February 15, 2015.

Enough! Just take me to Who do I have to talk to
