This in the last paragraph in the DNR Administrative decision. It says if the trail is still messed up they will make further closures. They sure as heck aren't going to re open it. The meeting on this decision are in Fairbanks on the 14th at the Noel Wien library at 7:00 pm
The other meeting is on the 13th in Anderson at the School at 7:00 Pm.
If this is allowed to stand we can expect a lot more of this type of management.
This in not Fish and Game saying you can't hunt with these rigs. This is DNR saying you can't access this land PERIOD.
Everyone needs to make a comment and a E-mail to the Governor. They are coming for the 4-wheelers make a stand now.
DNR recognizes the need for more comprehensive evaluation of trail conditions, the relative impacts caused by different vehicles (including the extent of additional trail damage resulting from primarily ATVs), clarity and appropriateness of existing Generally Allowed Use regulations (11 AAC 96.020), and potential long-term management options for the Rex Trail (trail upgrades, realignments, etc). This restriction, therefore, is considered to be temporary. It will remain in effect until new information regarding trail conditions, impacts, or use patterns justify a different management decision. DNR is developing a plan for additional trail assessment to be conducted this upcoming season; however, the nature and extent of such work is contingent upon funding and staff availability.
