Why close something "some" of the time?

I can understand seasonal closures. But I don't understand "open for such and such event"
A very big part of an event permit is the road bond payed out by the event organizer. This allows the DNR to do a survey of the permitted trails after the event to make sure no damage was done to trail. If in fact they conclude damge occured during the event the event organizers would not get their road bond monies returned.

This brings me to the "closed unless posted open" just becuase a trail has tracks on it does not mean it is posted open. Until the 2 wheel drive car law gets changed we are sh*t out of luck for trail riding with any challenge involved outside of the event permit.
