If you have listened to me at all, you know I brag about my piece of Alaska near Healy.
i have seen the whole property and cut a bunch of logs for the cabin. Apparently, for the last 10,000 years people have been accessing the lands west of me by driving through my lot. There is a pretty substantial 4- wheeler trail that goes about 100 yards north of my intended cabin site. It is a trail. It is not numbered, named or shown on any maps. I would like to move it. I would like to 'force' users to turn north at my eastern edge, then proceed across my northern edge and turn back south on my western side. Most of this intended path has been cleared by the state while I have also cleared the rest. it will increase the trip by about 300 yards in length, but it would allow folks to continue to acces their lands without me having to listen to the daily trips back and forth with building materials.
if I cut in the road and put up markers and maybe a sign to explain my position, are folks going to go around? Or do I have to be an a55 about it and close it off? I think I'll try cutting in the trail this year and post a sign asking folks to go around. See how that works first off. Then if I can't get 'compliance' I might have to place a couple gates which I would really hate to do.
I want to be a good neighbor and I intend to be sociable I just don't want to listen to ohvs throughout the day.
so what potential problems do you see with my plan that I might have not considered? Is there a better way to go about my goals?
