Need some info from you guys concerning a NF closure here in TX. You seem to be much more up to speed as to what reasons are valid than our groups here and know methods to fight successfully. We have had one area(our best) closed due to crossing creeks/streams. They said it violated the Clean Water Act though they allow the horse folks to cross at will, no restrictions. This was several years ago. Now in our last small NF area it is closed due to roots. Honest! They will not allow us to ride until WE clear all the roots they deem a problem. Again, honest! It is very obvious we are being played like a fiddle. There is a group that works with the NF but they are very timid and do not want to ruffle any feathers. Total fail. Help!!!
