I don't get it? They claim BIG $$/mile to work on trails, why not get some inmates out of their cell, give them some picks and shovels, or have the gas and log companies that turn all the "trails" into roads anyhow !

The trail maintanence issue is an ongoing joke. There are several riding clubs that would be willing to assist or even take this over completely. However, if ya want to run a chainsaw in the state forest, they require you to attend their class. Most likely taught by someone with very limited skill themselves. For that matter, they could experiment by offering some Saturday in the future as a trail mtc. day. See how many people show up to help and then go from there. But then again, it seems as if they'd rather just write fines and puff their chest out so that you can see that they have a badge. Now ya got me started ...

The stsate prison in Marienville is a level 5 institution. Inmates in Pa. must be a level 2(MC) (Minimum security/Community work program) custody level to work outside the fence. Since Mercer is the closest Level 2 prison I will volunteer to help supervise them...LOL

I remember years ago Ray Merriman, from ATV Traction, was in the midst of getting a deal set up to help with trail maintenance in exchange for a "member only day" during the closed season. I think it was our winter ride in 2008 that the trails were actually closed but somehow he got them to open up just for us to have our winter ride....

If we could only get through that thick layer of red tape, we could really do something with the trails at ANF. I'd show up to help, even if it meant calling in sick at my job. After all, it is OUR sport and if we aren't willing to give something back, what can we expect from the state?

This is why we have our own club with our own riding area, it is alot of work and you miss out riding in events and other areas, but you can ride almost all year long. If anyone wants to ride during the week let me know we ride at our ICV club a couple days a week. Alot of the time we do work but if someone wants to come and ride we have guest fees at $20 per day. It might be far for some of you but I thought I would offer.We are up by seven springs. www.icvatvclub.com

Thank you for the offer flamoli, I will get there some day. You guys have created a great ride area and club. It is a model I wish we could duplicate in the eastern part of the state.
