And this is why I say snowmobile funds for snowmobile trails. It costs ten times as much to build and maintain a full access trail. It is much more difficult to even plot a path through private properties. When lawyers get involved and force people to give up rights to their property it gets exspensive, and ugly. This is why sections of snowmobile trails more around from year to year. The MSA does a great job of working with landowners and leasing the use of their land. The MSA does not just come in and say "we are using your land" like other state run organazations.
