With the changes taking place at DNR (did you know the trail system was moving to the control of the Parks Division at DNR? http://www.glfwda.org/showthread.php?11940-Changes-within-the-MDNR&p=64706&posted=1#post64706
) the head of the Parks division is looking for your input.
Take a minute to complete the survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5PJQP5W
and let them know that we need more 4x4 opportunities on state land. It is not a bubble survey, you need to type in a response to their questions. We do not need more sandy, go-fast UTV routes. We have quality ATV and MX riding opportunities here in Michigan, and the growing UTV segment is also finding an increasing amount of opportunities as the DNR expands the ORV Route system, but the 4x4 users are not getting any benefit from miles of sandy, thawed out snow mobile routes. Make sure you do not rant or bad-mouth the DNR, but make sure when you complete the survey they know you are not finding quality recreational opportunities here in MI. If you travel out of state with your 4x4, tell them where you go and why. If you like the rocks at St Helen or the Mounds, tell them that. If you want them to duplicate Rocks and Valleys, the Badlands, Bundy Hill, Redbird, The Cliffs...whatever - make sure you tell them.
