PINEVILLE The Kisatchie National Forest has finalized the decision to restrict motorized travel to designated routes. This decision eliminates cross-country travel by ATVs (four-wheelers, motorcycles, trucks, etc.). The decision finalizes a process that began several years ago, said Gretta Boley, Forest Supervisor of Kisatchie National Forest. â€œWe have done our best to provide the needs of forest users while protecting our soil, water and vegetation resources. The decision has designated hundreds of miles of roads for motor vehicle travel and over 250 miles of trails for four-wheelers and motorcycle travel. The decision eliminates cross-country travel. Anyone leaving a designated road or trail and traveling cross-country by motor vehicle will be in violation of national forest regulations.
Looking for other Mule or UTV owners near Winn/Grant that want to ride.
If you kknow of a place to ride please post here.
The NFS is putting together another ride for utvs on November 15th on the Sandstone trail at Red Dirt. Everyone is invited. We will meet at 10 am at the Lotus Camp Trailhead. Bring you drinks and lunch…
Be sure and mark your calender. We have a unique chance here to get some trails designated or open to utvs. Hopefully we can get a group of at least three “lay” people to rub elbows with the forestry people.
The date for this ride has been changed from the 15th to the 28th and now the 29th. Still for 10 am at the Lotus camp. I’m hoping the weather will permit this to happen. I don’t want to lose any momentum we have on this. It sure would be great if the trail could be reopened in the spring for our rhinos…Ms Jackie and Jim are working hard for us on this. They just have to convince some nay sayers.
