    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    I'm trying to wade through the ginormous pile of map-spaghetti right now seeing if commonly used Kittitas Co trails may be affected....

    Hey Clutchman

    Almost looks like they may be adding a little bit more motorbike trails in the Gooseberry Flat area....

    Keep an eye on the WTA too. I'm sure they'd love to lump mtb in with motorized.

    This is pretty important stuff as even if mt. bikers maintain access on these trails, the motorized volunteers are extremely active and effective in bucking timber off of trails. On one hand we may enjoy trails that do not get absolutely tattered from a summer of moto use, but on the other the trails may never get cleared of blowdown either as the trail would lose the primary volunteer force. And if motos move out, the horseys move in, and trails get tattered anyways?

    The other factor to consider is if moto users are now vacant from a particular area, and the area comes up for Wilderness designation, the strongest opponents will have interest in opposing. Maybe that's just paranoid speak, but let's face it, pro W folk would like nothing better than to turn all public lands into Wilderness or so it seems.

    Ok strike my last comment, looking at the maps i don't see much significant change to put up red flags of major conspiracy haha.

    One thing i spied however is the closure of the Tyee Ridge Trail on the descent down to Mad River, therefore the loop will be kaput once they get around to decommisioning the trail.

    After looking at all the maps i don't see much change at all. There are a few side trails that are going non motorized, one of the trails going up to Klone Peak is going to become non-motorized. But ultimately i'm not finding much change especially to the big areas, Angels Staircase, Entiat, Lake Wenatchee, Teanaway, Taneum, Ravens Roost, Little Bald....
