1. Eliminate the “Supervisor Closure Order” from the Forest Service plan. 2. Preserve the current 200 miles of historic trails they intend to close in the East End of the MRNRA.

The Forest Service is planning to take away our freedom to ride 200 miles of historic trails located in the East End of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area (MRNRA) that have been used by citizens for decades and generations.  The Forest Service intends to implement a “Supervisor Closure Order”, which would result in tickets and fines for citizens riding on any part of the forest not designated as an official trail. Not only will this action restrict our personal freedoms, it will have a negative impact on the economy at all levels, on the environment, and on the health and wellness of the very citizens that make our country strong.
