New USFS penalties

Set foot on any trail or public land deemed as “closed” by the US Forest Service and face a $5000 fine and up to six months in jail.

That's what our hard earned tax dollars pay for!
I always, and will always follow the rules.

From my understand a trail does not need to be marked as closed, simply if its not marked open, its closed. Is that correct Tod?

According to this order it only applies to places posted as closed.

So the penalty for riding a dirt bike on the Pacific Crest Trail is the same as it was last week, but now there's less likely to be any hikers out there to report me right? Sounds like a sign.

A lot of things have been getting signed as Closed this week that didn't make sense.

A $5000 fine, imprisonment, and a criminal record- I guess the safe thing to do is just stay home and watch TV.



Is TV still legal? Is it watching me?

So time to remove my numbers and name off the graphics on my bike. Based on what I've observed around here they'd be arresting and fining most of the people I see out riding.

Whatever

They're too busy checking firewood tags and hunters to even begin to worry about us around here. The motor vehicle maps that started a year ago, not one bit of enforcement. Nada, zero, zip

Just got back from riding FS 17. Didn't see a open or closed sign. Didn't see a open or closed sign on FS 18 when we went by there. But then all the wonderful
politicians are busy saving us.

Interesting part is if you have been driving/riding around notice how many hikers there are at the closed trail heads?

Wonder if they will enforce that....
