(Confirmed) Eldorado National Forest will be closed to 4x4's for 2012

Eldorado Announcement

Just had this sent to me. I am scouring the interwebs for more information and will update this post as I read and gather more information. To confirm or bust this information. I'm hoping it's a bad joke.

From pirate4x4's land use forum

I sure hope this is not true......

I hope it's not true as well since the NorCalFJs adopted Long Canyon Trail last year with the hard work of DWH and Tater

I talked to my friend Dylan at work today and he said he's heard of that too.  His Mom works for the Forest Service and is the Ranger for Barrett Lake Trail and Wrights Lake and he emailed her to see if she had any inside info.

Hello Opg,

Thanks for the heads.  Please let us know of any developments, pretty sure most of us would be willing to write our local reps if needed.

I'd blame the Rangers, all they want to do is drink beer anyway

I emailed my contact for Long Canyon Trail as well. His work week starts Thursday. Hopefully he will reply then.

Great! Now I have to become a mall crawler!

This is horrible news, I am hoping there is a chance to review or reverse this decision. i was avoiding opening this thread...I should have never left my bubble...

Wiki on Judge Dread "Karlton is known as an outspoken liberal" No kidding.

My GAWD, so it is true.  A very sad day for us wheelers. 

Perhaps this is all the more reason for us to step up our focus on Tread Lightly principles when we DO wheel.  The 4-wheeling and 2-wheeling communities around the world have their share of irresponsible users.  It takes just one screwball to screw the rest of us.  I say we step up our game on ensuring that each of us and those within our communities truly show that we can be and are responsible users of our lands.

.... what she said!
