    As much as I don't like all the logging going on in the TSF, I do appreciate that it is an integral part of our economy. Every time they log, the trails get destroyed, lost and then most times rebuilt by machines.. Don't take this the wrong way. I am not saying Save the Trees. I understand the forest returns, and also that most of our favorite trails are old log grades.

    I think there ought to be a concerted effort to proactively clean up the TSF trail systems to minimize creek crossings and runoff. Inevitably the OHV runoff will be the next target..

    Hopefully we can keep riding in the TSF, but this will take work, more than what is being done now..
