Remember, we are talking about ORV activity in off limit areas. ORVs do much more damage than a 6 inch rut. They destroy vegetation cover and erode soils along trails, primitive roads, and wilderness, access routes. ORVs are substantially more impacting to natural resource conditions and the experiences of recreational visitors than other non-motorized forms of recreation. Increasingly ORVs are being used in places once considered pristine and wild. Furthermore, their use on federal lands has grown substantially, though land managers have frequently been unable to address the resulting resource damage to soils, vegetation, wildlife, cultural resources, and escalating user conflicts.

Hikers visit our nation’s parks, forests and deserts to escape the fast pace of modern society, connect with nature, observe flora and fauna, and experience solitude, fresh air, and natural sounds while exploring and enjoying the outdoors. Unfortunately, these experiences are increasingly at risk in many areas due to the proliferation and uncontrolled use of ORVs on public lands. ORV use is displacing or negatively affecting the experiences of people in all regions of the country. Tthe widespread increase in ORV uses adversely affect the land, environment, and wildlife that are important to all citizens

ORV use does more than damage to the land than any pot smoker could. Damage from ORVs runs into the millions and us taxpayers have to pay for it. Emergency trail/route repairs and mitigation and rehabilitation of critical or sensitive resources are expensive and a drain on limited agency funds.

So I say to illegal ORV users, go ride where it's legal and stay out of the Deep Creek area.
