Wisconsin Needs Your Help This could help us all!

Hello Everyone,

I am requesting your assistance for comments in response to the
Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Plan. The Midwest 4 Wheel Drive
Association and Wisconsin 4 Wheel Drive Association need your help to keep
our public trails and specifically the "Pipeline" trail OPEN, and need
EVERYONE to write a letter in support of maintaining all existing access to
public lands and designate additional trails for four wheel drive use.
These comments and letters need to be sent to the Park Falls Supervisors
Office by October 31st, 2002.

We have included an example letter including the mailing address for Bill
Sullivan at the Park Falls Supervisors Office. Feel free to add you own
personal comments to the letter as you see fit.

For more information on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Plan, please
visit http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/cnnf/natres/plan/index.html

Thanks for your help.

BILL SULLIVAN
PARK FALLS SUPERVISORS OFFICE
1170 4 AVE SOUTH
PARK FALLS WI 54552

Dear Bill Sullivan:

This letter is in response to the September 2002 Chequamegon-Nicolet
National Forest Planning News regarding Four Wheel Drive (4WD) trail use and
also the Road Analysis.

Access to National Forests promotes good, wholesome recreational activities
for all citizens including families, the elderly and those physically
challenged. Any actions such as reduced funding, limited access or road
closures would restrict these activities for the taxpaying public.

In addition to the benefits supplied to the above mentioned individuals,
continued access to National Forest lands via existing roads/trails provide
enormous social and economic enhancements to townships, counties, and many
others.

Therefore, I strongly urge you to maintain accessibility to ALL roads/trails
no matter what level of road/trail it is. The level of roads that you
believe cannot be maintained must be left open. The lower classified roads
would not need to be maintained but could be accessed by public motorized
vehicles.

In regard to your consideration of trails for Four Wheel Drive (4WD)
vehicle's
I find the ONLY realistic alternative listed is the one "to maintain the
existing 25 miles trail and designate an additional 25 miles in length." I
find this to be the most acceptable of the three, but question the mileage
limitation when I see the ever expanding usage of the Pipeline.

In closing, due to the continual growth of 4WD users who seek challenging
opportunities and access to lower standard roads, please take into
consideration my opinions and recommendations.


Sincerely,

Re: Wisconsin Needs Your Help This could help us all!

Even if you have never heard of the pipeline trail before this could help you. We are trying to keep class 4 and 5 roads open in the National Forest. These are the 2 track roads or as we call them trails that we all love to drive on. We wont them to realize that we do not wont them to berm or gate these roads. We as clubs would be willing to do maintenace to them in order to keep them enviromentaly safe. If we can keep them open here and prove that the system works it will help us all out in the years to come. Please take the time to send the letter even if you have never heard of the Pipeline Trail. It is for us now and your help could keep it here and help to make it even longer and better. Thank you
