    Default REX Trail open to ATV's????

    I have been reading/hearing the REX trail may be closed to ATV use. Is this so? I have never been on the trail except for once this winter on a snowmachine. We were thinging of riding in on the trail and camping back there over the long weekend. Is it open for this type of activity or closed? How far back can you go on ATV's?
    I would like to know this before we plan and drive all the way up there.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks

    It's open to orv's under 1500lbs is what i've heard so you can ride an atv on the Rex but know where your at when it comes to private land.

    Default Rex Trail closure

    Here is the link to the DNR website notification of the closure of the Rex Trail to off-road vehicles.

    I have been huniting this area with track rigs for over fifty years. It was only with the surge in popularity of 4 wheelers and other like vehicles did the damage expand. Oddly enough, most of the recent damage to the environment from use of the trail has been done by 4 wheelers. When trail conditions are bad, wheelers can't travel in the main trail. as most larger rigs can, and they begin to spread out, braiding the trail exponentiallly. Adding to this, is the Fish and Game touting this area as the largest population of moose in the state, and opening several cow moose seasons. This has led to a rapid expansion of use by all.
