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.
I hear what you are saying. I guess what I am getting at is not everyone knows closed unless posted open. Further if you see fresh tracks or an "established" trail do you always look for a sign that states "hey check out this trail its open"?
My point is there seems to be WAY too many gray areas and these permit runs seem to gray those areas up even more....
