I received an email from the USFS, Joe Chavez , that an illegal trail closure sign will come down and the trail will be included in the trail designation process as a legal route. The no motorized sign went up in 1996. I have been increasingly persistent the last few years, including private meetings, field trips, official meetings, emails, phone calls and much more. The USFS did not have a NEPA document and site specific planning document to support the closure of this trail.The fact is, in many cases the USFS does not have the legal documentation to support many such "NO OHV" closure signs. If you have trails which have "Closed" signs, I suggest that you use the Freedom of Information Act and request a copy of the NEPA document and the site specific planning document, as well as the record of the required public meetings for each trail within the USFS areas you ride, just because it has a "NO OHV" sign, does not necessarily indicate a legal closure.
