The U. S. Forest Service has been busy this Summer with improvements. These photos are from our annual Post VA4WDA Trail Ride follow-on trip.
New trail blazes:
New trail guide signs:
My favorite. This shows the U.S. Forest Service what is possible if they simply blaze trails and mark sensitive areas.
The sign warns about erosion and invites foot travel, but asks wheelers to leave this section alone.
How hard, how long would you have to work to rip this sign out and drive where you want? 5 minutes?
And, yet ... it has been there *at least* three years I have driven this Big Levels, and ethical wheelers have respected their request:
Any Shenandoah Valley 4-Wheelers or other members near Staunton or Harrisonburg ... I can use a short list of interested wheelers willing to help with these improvements on the Big Levels trail. We have an interested brother in the USFS Glenwood-Pedlar District who can use your email@example.com
