  • Minnesota wheelers need your help to keep trails open

    First off the reason I am posting this here is because it will get seen alot more than in the land use forum, so if at all possible I hope it can stay for awhile and people will e-mail the contact person. I know alot of you are not from minnesota but if the people at the state level see the amount of people that are concerned about trail closeures, mabey it will help to keep them open. A good portion of trails in the state forests and National forests in the state of minnesota are being closed to all motor vehicles, some will remain open to ATV's but Jeeps will be outta luck. One issue that we are trying to address is trying to break the motor vehicles into different classes like the state has done with ATV's and their weight limit, so if you think that the idea of dividing the motor vehicles into two different groups, like full size trucks and smaller jeeps or light trucks is good mabey you could mention that in your e-mail. I thank you all for your support and I hope you send this guy a message.

    Here is the e-mail that my club recived and this is the contact e-mail you send your e-mails to. bill.johnson@dnr.state.mn.us.
