please send comments for burnt-hill ORV trails

Recommended Posts

this info has already been posted before but I wanted to re-post to give more direct attention to the fact that we need everyone to send in their comments to support the Burnt Hill trail system and designation of motorized use trails within the system.

In brief, here is what is being proposed:

DNR is developing a plan for managing public use of trails on a 5,100-acre block of state trust lands, southwest of Sequim, Washington, known as “Burnt Hill”. The trust lands are managed as commercial forestland. However, consistent with state multiple use law, DNR allows recreational use of these lands. Approximately 520 acres of private forestland are within or adjacent to the state lands in this planning area. The planning area is surrounded by federal forestland, rural land, and expanding urban lands.

Here is a link with an article about the trail system:

Here is some information and letter from Jay Oen (member of Burnt Hill Focus Group) that may help you drafting your letter/comments:

Please take just a few minutes of your time to send your comments supporting the Burnt Hill Trail System and designation of motorized use trails. Comments should be sent to sepacenter@wadnr.gov, please include File No. 05-100402 in both the subject and body of your email.

thanks :banghead:
