Please be actve and continue to check the tonto's homepage. The latest changes being made are the Trave Management Rule - Basically a trail designation process that could change your favorite trail. 4x4 trails could become horse only - single track dirtbike trails could become horse trails, or be closed all together. Its mostly ohv stuff that will be closed. I will do my best to find out where and when they will have a meeting so we can all be there to make sure our favorite trails stay the way they are. I am a four wheel drive enthusiast, but i also know that atv's and 2-wheelers need their own areas away from truck traffic, too. i will make sure these places are equally shared when I voice my opinions at the public hearing which is TBA. I hope others can also be there. here is the tonto's homepage, go to the link on the right of their page that has the 3 quads in the picture and says "travel management"
the only problem is that they are releasing the new motor vehicle use map for the cave creek ranger district in september, but there are no public hearing dates posted on their webpage yet. mesa ranger district has been pushed back to 2009. check the page and call the phone number of your local district representative to find out more!
