Makes sense to me. Sparks from ATV's have caused many forest fires and undoubtedly degrade fragile enviornments.

Having a plan is NOT controversial. Allowing motorized vehicles everywhere willyl nilly is or should be.

This article about the Santa Fe National Forest travel management project is grossly in error. Apparently last summer's news release about the announcement of the proposed action and scheduling public meetings was picked up by mistake and repeated as if it just occurred.

I strongly support the proposed limitations on motorized vehicle access to the national forests. Although my hiking ability has been much reduced in the last few years, I would never consider tearing up the environment, scaring animals, and interfering with hiker's and camper's enjoyment of the forests by riding any sort of motorized vehicle in the national forests. I would rather hike the three or four miles I can now manage than ride many more miles on any kind of motorized vehicle.

I live in Jaconita and I own my own ATV. From my house I can get on my ATV and drive from Jaconita to Tetilla Peak and never cut a fence or leave a gate open. Just because we are citizens does not give anyone a right to destroy property even if it's USF. On the Caja I count the trash piles and cut fences. People don't care about the land and the resource they abuse. Vandilism, ATV,4X4 and shooters are the biggest problems on forest land.
