Re-open Fort Hoyle Off Road Park!

Let the public respectfully use the land w/ donation & signed waiver.

    1. Petition by

      Steve Healey

A few weeks ago there was a active quarry located on Fort Hoyle Rd. in Edgewood, Md. that operates Monday thru Friday that opened to the public to use for off roading on Saturday and Sunday. They allowed us to use this area respectfully after a donation and signed waiver. I happened to participate only once on a Sunday afternoon. There was many designated trials to ride and explore. It was a great time to say the least!! Unfortunately this trip was a solo mission due to the fact that ONE in particular neighbor of the quarry made several complaints to the owner(s) of the quarry. This happened to stop all activity for the public to be able to use this land during off-hours of the active quarry.

I would like to have this petition signed and brought to the owner(s) of Harford Industrial Minerals and show them that there is a numerous amount of people that would rather be able to make use of the land legally, then having to find alternate areas to off road, in some cases illegally. The owners of the quarry have already had a idea of how many people would cometo the quarry during off hours. The quarry owners have also seen that the people that have participated in using the area have respected the "No-Use Zones". I have personally enjoyed the time that I have spent using the area and as a local resident I would love if they reopened the quarry for public use.

      Offroading is something my family and love to do. Places are becoming more and more scarce to enjoy this hobby/sport that that millions in the world enjoy. Its a shame that liabiliaty, noise, fresh dirt, and the few "bad apples" have made it so diffacult for so many of us. I've never been here, but would love to come to MD when it gets reopened.

      We ride 4 wheelers and having a place to legally ride is much better than the alternative.
