Maryland DNR to close Greenridge Trails

From the Frederick News Post:

Md. eyes ATV trail closures, tighter enforcement
HAGERSTOWN (AP) ó The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says itís considering closing the stateís most popular off-road vehicle trail as part of a plan to curb environmental damage and illegal riding.
The agency released the recommendations Tuesday.
They include closing the 18-mile loop in western Marylandís Green Ridge State Forest.
It is one of 41 trails, both legal and illegal, where the DNR found natural resources highly impacted. The factors include damage to rare, threatened and endangered species or sensitive habitats.
The agency also is considering tighter enforcement and higher fees for off-road vehicle use statewide.
The DNR is accepting public comments on the recommendations through April 30.
The agency says it will discuss the report with stakeholders and all-terrain vehicle users at a meeting Wednesday in Owings Mills.

Looks like you all have the same problem we have up here in MI. The people making the decisions regarding offroad trail use live no where near the trails. Make no mention that the meetings regarding closure are to far of a drive for the people that use them.

Im a transplant from MD, Frederick actually and Owings Mills is a jaunt for working folk. This is why I urge everyone to support your local clubs and orgs, so they can be your voice.
