PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association supports the National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act, which would allow more volunteer efforts to assist the U.S. Forest Service in maintaining its 157,000 miles of trails.
Introduced on Feb. 10 by U.S. Reps. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) and Tim Walz (D-Minn.), the act — H.R. 845 — requires a national strategy to maximize the use of volunteers and partners and addresses liability concerns that restrict outside groups and individuals working on the trails, specifically including motorized trails as a priority.
BOISE, ID – When the snow clears in the coming spring, Wyoming riders will again enjoy the opportunity to traverse Trail 38 on the Bighorn National Forest, thanks to the Inyan Kara Riders-BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) legal effort. Trail 38, a 4.5 mile section of rare Wyoming single-track, was closed in the Spring of 2012 through a Tongue District Ranger letter purporting to change the Trail’s designation to non-motorized. Following unsuccessful outreach and correspondence to the Forest Service, local riders contacted the BRC to evaluate their options. On August 6, 2014, the BRC Legal Team filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District of Wyoming, alleging that the non-motorized designation of Trail 38 violated federal laws and regulations. Rather than answer the complaint, the Forest Service withdrew its designation, and Trail 38 reverted to its earlier motorized status.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The U.S. Forest Service has investigated four incidents in which vandals endangered the lives of motorcyclists and all-terrain vehicle riders by burying spikes along trails used by off-highway vehicles and others, the American Motorcyclist Association reports.
The spiked strips, which resemble heavy barbed wire, can cause flat tires on motorized vehicles, which could cause loss of control and result in a crash. The booby traps also threaten the safety of hikers and horseback riders and even the wildlife that travel along trail corridors.
