There has been a great deal of vandalism in this area and it is high on our list of patrol areas.
Joe has a map that we follow. ;)
edit: i was late lol
And I am assuming you are a DNR officer? I am from the area and went to Ferris. And USE
to go down the powerlines when i was younger (until i was educated about the legalities by other RESPONSIBLE wheelers). The main problem out there is kids from ferris, burning tires and partying and "MUDDIN".
We were talking awhile back and i had the idea of charging to be on the powerlines, some type of seasonal sticker, or pass, something along those lines. There are some AWESOME hill climbs/off camber areas, etc. (i could care less about the mud holes anymore). I think it would be a good way for the power company to make some money, and responsible wheelers to have some more challenging trails. And not worry about the idiots that try to run/pull their gates over!!!!
Probably will never happen but figured I'd throw the idea out there.
