New ATV Trails Coming Soon - But Only With Your Help

We need your help - please just simply copy and paste the below message before March 27th and email to:
Thank you for holding this open forum to investigate public opinion on ATV trail openings.
My family and I continue to ride and we support the DCNR in opening state forest lands and forestry roads for ATV use to increase the riding mileage in our state.
We clearly see the economic impact that is happening in the region and understand what it could bring to the area with more trail miles being made available.
ATV riders have proven they can be responsible, and many are an older demographic which brings more expendable income, including mine.
With the lack of snow in recent years and the ability to ride ATV's year-round we would request access to the many more miles of snowmobile trails available in the region to be dual usage with ATV's
Also access to state forest roads like Lyman Run Rd that could connect riders to the Potato City area and on to the northern side of US Rte. 6 when the seasonal trails are closed at Lyman Run. forest roads could also be used as connector roads to other ATV trails and legal roads.
This would lead to more year-round riding opportunities and more economic impact in an area that desperately needs it that time of the year.
We thank you for all you've done and ask that you continue to do more - we as taxpayers enjoy access to our lands.
