ya, that sux but so does every other shutdown (or proposed shutdown) that's coming
i love moab, heading there next week. its definitely a special place



read about the big land buyout in Cle Elum? that should also be on everybody's radar

get involved, support those who support the sport (and the organizations that fight for us)

and a preemptive thanks to todd for all his hard work

My comments;

Absolutely uncalled for government meddling. I'm a full time USFS employee and everytime I see more restrictions on the public for using THEIR LAND, I'm ashamed. I'm sad as a US Citizen and a Federal employee. It's already a remote area that 99% of US Citizens will never see, why would you make it any harder to have that special life experience?

I wouldn't have thought there was a need for a permit system on the WRT. Every time I've ridden it I've seen very few vehicles, and most of those were bicycles.

Thumbs down

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ What hugemoth said . . . . . .

Rode through the WRT three years ago . . . . . Need to get back there.

This is obviously a means of increasing revenues for NaParcSirvus . . . . . eventually; Perhaps Kanyunlanz feels that they're not collecting sufficient funds being that there is a bypass . . . . . . Although the ranger that we saw & talked to never requested our entry permit to the park (Of course we had them that day).

(A certain entry point thru private land can get motorists, bicyclists to the good stuff bypassing the NaParcSirvus entry gait, & thus the fee . . . . .)

Wow, this seems extreeeemly fugged-up > > > > especially the limited number of vehicle(this is inclusive of motos & four wheeled vehicles ?) entries

Wow, just wow.

So has anyone submitted a comment, and if so, for reference what where your comments?

I recently returned from Moab and was already restricted from riding the WRT because no ATV's (wife) or dog's on back of said ATV or my motorcycle are allowed.

What is/are Canyon land National Parks concerns (specifically)? Too much traffic, road damage, trash?

Any further information or input would be appreciated.

Rode the WTB a few times, last was 2011. Did the whole loop and saw maybe 3 other vehicles and 6 bikes. The folks that ride the trail respect it and appreciate the superb beauty and access. Another Sierra club initiative to over protect and restrict access .. have seen this before in Wyoming and Colorado...
