OHV Title

USFS - Klamath National Forest

 I totally support any agency that is opening up areas for more OHV riding.  I would look forward to riding in the greater northern California.

Send them the money.  [Pat Henderson - 4/2/10]



 Klamath NF - G09-02-06-P01- Humbug; G09-02-06-P02 - OHV Area

As president of the Siskiyou County Off Road Riders and on behalf of its membership we support these two planning requests.  The Humbug site is very small, but does have a proposed trail system associated with it.
 
We do have a concern with the A-12 planned riding area.  It is 50 acres, but the 15 miles of trails on the 320 acres were not proposed in the Final EIS.  This really limits the use, due to the fact that there are no trails associated with this site. 
 
We do agree with the comments of ROC. [Jim Lipke, SCORR President - 4/1/10]



 As a member of the Recreation Outdoors Coalition, the Redding Dirt Riders, and on behalf of our membership, we strongly support Klamath NF's grant request G09-02-06-P01 - Humbug for the following reasons.
 
This area is a relatively new use area and in need of management before use and resource damage get out of control.  Providing managed OHV opportunity locations helps keep people recreating where it is appropriate and off the private lands.  This area, when developed, could provide  a wonderful area for training children to ride responsibly and to educate users about responsibility for resource protection.  Opportunity for adoption of the site by the local OHV club would reduce chances of vandalism and reduce maintenance costs to the agency.
 
Here again, this plan came about by collaboration between the public, county and the Klamath NF.  This project has a high probability of success because of these partnerships.
 
G09-02-06-P02 - OHV Area   This is an excellent example of where green sticker funds should be going, to develop and enhance OHV opportunities.  This popular area is close to town but not close enough to create conflict.  It consists of a variety of riding opportunities and links with other riding opportunities.
 
The Klamath NF did an excellent job of collaborating with the public and the county as shown by the county's willingness to designate their forest roads for mixed use to accommodate OHV recreation.
 
The ROD is not out yet and it is not written in cement that the Forest is going to be able to finalize and then keep their chosen alternative.  If this area is stricken from their ROD these funds should be withdrawn.  Green sticker funds should be used to create, enhance and maintain OHV access and opportunity and not used to reduce opportunities and access.  [Brendan Hathaway - 3/21/10]



 We are opposed to providing OHV money to the USFS to close the trails!

We have paid to have the trails put in to their inventory. Now they ask for OHV money to have them closed! As we have seen in the "Route Designation" process the USFS is not a good investment for OHV funds.
Give the grants to groups that actually enhance OHV opportunity, like the BLM. [Brendan Hathaway  - 3/17/10]

 Please do not give any state money to a federal agency to close our public land to us.  I whole heartedly reject what the federal government is doing to our lands.  They are tying to kill local economies and discourage people from living free.  It appears as if they all want us to sit and a desk and enjoy the forest on a screensaver.
