MUST READ - "IF YOU LIKE TO RIDE SHNF!!!"

FYI guys, "FOR THOSE THAT RIDE THE SHNF". At the Texas coalition meeting on Saturday, head ranger for the SHNF. Warren Oja, mentioned that if ODODB hadn't stepped up and worked the multiuse trails and got them in better condition than they have been in years, the forestry service probably would have shut them down for good by the end of this year. There is now only Jason to manage the trail systems in the SHNF for the forestry service, and he can't do it alone. Warren also mention that the Texas coalition would be playing a much larger roll in keeping the trail open and maintaining them in the future to keep them from being closed forever. I urge all who love riding in the SHNF to please join the Tx coalition and help maintain these trails so we do not lose this great place in Texas to ride our dirt bikes. So, again, if you like riding the trails in the forest, join in and help out or go buy 150,000 acres to ride on, your choice guys.

Sad. Thought it was supposed to be our land. Not a new thing though. Feds seem to reducing the access to more and more land such as this

We post work days periodically and need all the help we can get to keep the trails cleaned and forest open
<AND/OR>
join the Texas Trails Coalition @ http://trailscoalitionoftexas.org/

Suggest both.

If we don't do this, the trails will close. We are always looking for help from boy scout troops, etc to get their badges and credits or schools looking for projects etc also.

Thanks for the interest,
Larry

What all is involved in cleaning up the trails? Just picking up trash and keeping falling tress off it or what?

Pretty much it Dave. The forestry service checks the trails periodically and they have to be up to "CODE" or can be shut down indefinately. That is were we must now come in and keep these trails cleared. They have only one person to check and work trails now, and if we don't do it, it won't get done and we could lose out riding trails there. Warren Oja, ranger in charge of SHNF, is retiring by the end of this year, which means someone from outside will be moved here to take his place, and if the trail system is not cleared and safe to ride, they could easily just shut it down due to lack of funding and manpower. Also if the new person in charge is green, well they may just be looking for that excuss to get us out. It's a lot more than just picking up sticks and cutting a few trees that fell over the trails, but yes that is definately part of it and where we need a lot of volunteers to keep it open.

Well when I ride there I'll make sure to keep my eyes peeled for trail improvements that I can do. I'll try and take my Boy Scout troop there to do some service as well.
