I still dont quiet get this. Is the place completly closed except for those test days?
from what I have read yes. until they finish. I think they are looking for feedback on how they did, which from what I have also read is not good.
It's a dorky place. Tight, contrived, made by bureaucrats. Yech. Screw it, I'll ride anywhere else.........
I ran into a crew while riding at Walker on monday that told me they work full time (6 GUYS) at walker and Reiter doing maintainace on trails and building the new ones..
I was told they had to put in a hard bed base to control runoff from the trail..when he got done telling me it sounded more like a gravel sidewalk..
what i did find online wasnt supprising..
-3 yrs. Gov work.
-1000 feet ( yes feet ) of jeep / 4x 4 trail
-1.5 miles of gravel sidewalk
**sounds like its really planned to turn over to hikers and bikers and be turn-key ready for them..
**side note** At Walker on monday I found a freshly totaled subaru wagon with current plates way up on the mainline past where Pats trail joins in and splits off..
If your neighbor is missing a white wagon..
looks like some kids?
were up to no good im thinkin'...
I think that is the point of new rieter, to frustrate and drive out motorized users by having less trail miles and trails that arent that great. At least that is the message DNR has been sending. "Oh, you want naturual dirt trails? Well how about 3 feet of gravel instead?"
This will be attributed to scofflaw ORVers. We'll probably see this pic in the next "ORVABUSE.wtf " brochure.
Hopefully some 4x4 volunteers will drag it out of there.
Imagine the horror when a greenie finds out their Subaru became a "thrillcraft".
From the photos I have seen of the new "trails" and the descriptions posted of them there is little doubt in my mind that the whole thing is a sham.
Anyone who enjoys riding real trails will quickly get BORED riding these hard packed crushed rock freeways but as others have noted they will make excellent low maintenance hiking paths.
When its brought up how much money per mile its costing to build these log curb lined "off road motorcycle trails" the greenies will start to scream and this bit of foolishness will come to a quick end, leaving a few feet or maybe a couple of miles of trails no off road motorcyclist will want to use and another area will be shut down to motorized use which is the end result this scam is geared toward.
Are you suggesting a Gov't......conspiracy??
Ooh. These subjects are sooooo much fun!!
IN!! Before this goes to JoMamma
I figured that last post would bring the portlandia posse out of its hole.
PP for short?
We love ya Cob, and while reading that post (or similar ones),
It's hard not to picture your perma-grin, while sitting around a campfire.
Looking forward to seeing it again at Black Dog this year
Damn RIGHT! When the trail first "opened" it was actually dangerous, with bits of placed mini logs (firewood) that'd knock you off your bike...they'd roll right under you. On a trail 1 ft wide. Gravel. WHAT A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT.
Note the puffy coated, granola eatin', Govt worker, Subaru driving bureaucrats with STUPD HARDHATS ON. Check out the shitty trail:
Wow. Please tell me that video is a joke.
Its way worse then I thought. I had seen pictures of the "trail" from a while ago that showed the logs lining the trail, but thought I read that the logs were temporary and were going to be removed.
That video shows logs that are obviously set in place lining the trail and cut off stumps everywhere!
What the hell are they thinking?
Could they make it anymore dangerous and completely lame at the same time?
And keep in mind, this is their idea of a "world class ORV area" - their words, not mine.
Looks like a trail that needs a work party to clear out deadfall...
I would not let my kid ride that til the logs were at least moved out of the way a bit and some of the pungi stumps were eliminated.
Great job granola munchers...:eek1...but we move at a pace greater than walking and do not need any artificial difficulty enhancers built in.
I swear to god....if I ever came up to ride that trail and found a hiker on it....I would plant them in a shallow grave.
