An Activity by the Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association (U4WDA)

We desparately need volunteers to help with an emergency project in American Fork Canyon on Saturday 7/21.

A 4x4 user caused some SEVERE resource damage near the Pittsburgh Lake Trailhead over the weekend. The guy was given a hefty fine, and he will be out there this weekend working on the repair.

There are two options for helping with this project.

1. Meet at the Pleasant Grove Ranger District office (390 N 100 E in PG) at 7:00 AM to convoy with Forest Service personnel to the site.

2. Meet at Tibble Fork at 9:00 AM to join U4WDA personnel to convoy up to the site.

It is short notice, but the damage was done over the weekend and needs to be repaired before the canyon gets busy with OHV users this weekend. The longer it goes, the worse the damage will become by continued use.

Being able to react to these types of emergency needs is important in our long term strategy to help keep the roads open in the canyon, and for having a chance to get some closed routes re-opened. We really need a strong showing from the 4x4 community on this project.

Everyone who shows up will get a free U4WDA t-shirt.

 Hope to see you there!

Todays project was a HUGE success!  We had 36 volunteers, and completed 150 feet of fence in about 4 hours.  Big thanks to everyone who showed up to help.  This was a huge win for U4WDA and the motorized community in our dealings with the Forest Service.
