Welcome The Delaware and Hudson Rail Trail is a 19.8 mile long converted railroad bed in southwestern Vermont which was originally part of the Delaware and Hudson rail system that connected Rutland, Vermont with Albany, New York. The two nearly ten mile long sections extend through scenic areas of western Rutland and Bennington Counties with views of nearby hills, open farmland, forests, wetlands, end villages. The rail trail leaves Vermont and continues into New York State in three locations. However, these sections have not been developed for recreational purposes, the uses mentioned below may not be suitable and portions of the railbed have legally reverted to the adjacent private landowners. Trail Uses Trail Surface The trail surface consists of the original cinder ballast and in some locations gravel and stone. The trail, although graded, may offer a surface too soft for the narrow tires found on most ten- speed bicycles. The surface is better suited for the wider tires of mountain bikes.

Extractions: Nova Fuel Use Study Results are In! Herbert Research has released the draft of the NOVA Fuel Use Study.( for the full text you can visit the www.iac.wa.gov website) The results show that: 21% of NOVA revenues come from motorized use, including dirt bikes, snowmobiles, ATVs and 4X4s. 30% come from non-motorized trail related activities, including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and cross country skiing 49% come from other recreational activities such as camping, sightseeing, hunting berry-picking and fishing The final results of the study will be adopted by the Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation at their January 23 meeting. Historical Note: The NOVA plan sets policies to guide expenditures under Washington State Non-Hiway and Off Road Vehicle Activities (NOVA) Program. The NOVA plan provides funding to various local, state and federal agencies. Funds are used to plan, acquire and build and maintain facilities, and manage off road vehicles (ORV) and non-Hiway road recreational opportunities. The results of this new study will likely change the way the IAC distributes funds.

Extractions: Washington, DC 20250 Dear Chief Bosworth: The undersigned organizations, representing millions of Americans who engage in quiet outdoor recreation activities on National Forest lands throughout the nation, commend the USDA Forest Service's intention to develop new policies and regulations to address unmanaged off-road vehicle use and the growing negative consequences of such use. We appreciate the opportunity to offer input in this process and strongly urge the agency to propose and implement meaningful reform that safeguards natural resources and the associated values that make our activities in National Forests so rewarding. We appreciate your recognition of unmanaged off-road vehicle use as one of the four greatest threats to the long-term health of our National Forests. This threat includes impacts to the land, air and water quality, wildlife and habitat, and the experiences of millions of Americans who visit National Forests to hike, backpack, paddle, climb, birdwatch, horseback ride, cross-country ski, snowshoe, and mountain bike. Roughly 150 million Americans participate in these and other quiet outdoor recreation activities every year, and they turn to National Forests for their fresh air, clean water, wild plants and animals, inspiration, and natural quiet and backcountry character. It is well-established that the proliferation of off-road vehicle and snowmobile use places soil, vegetation, air and water quality, and wildlife at risk through pollution, erosion, sedimentation of streams, habitat fragmentation and disturbance, and other adverse impacts to resources. These impacts cause severe and lasting damage to the natural environment on which human-powered and equestrian recreation depends and alter the remote and wild character of the backcountry. Motorized recreation monopolizes forest areas by denying other users the quiet, pristine, backcountry experience they seek. It also presents safety and health threats to other recreationists.

Extractions: Donate to Faultline Off-Road To Ruin by Teri Shore Each year, millions of tourists visit California to enjoy its scenic treasures, expecting peace and quiet in the backcountry. Many leave never having escaped the din of motors. California residents often have similar experiences our wild places have been overrun. Motorized vehicles are a fact of life in California. But a special class, called off-road vehicles, leaves a unique mark on the landscape. These vehicles, which include dirt bikes, aggressive all-terrain vehicles, 4x4s, and snowmobiles, are made to be ridden in the backcountry. Their tracks are visible for generations, and their impacts often permanent. Hundreds of thousands of these vehicles travel California's backcountry each year. When irresponsibly used, or improperly managed, they damage sensitive soils, degrade critical wildlife habitat, and shatter the quiet of the great outdoors. For those living adjacent to popular off-road vehicle recreation areas, the clamor can make life miserable. Off-road vehicle use also poses special problems for law enforcement. Some off-road vehicle riders disregard environmental laws and property boundaries, scarring the land and irritating landowners. These

However, primary issues of concern were the lack of opportunities for less popular outdoor activities- such as archery and mechanized cars; costs families incur for youth participation (gear, commuting, fees); and the conflict between users in multiple-use areas. Participants acknowledged the need for cooperation between the public users and the public entities to increase recreational opportunities as well as improve the quality. I.

Extractions: Recreation Plan will deny ATV access to the entire Region 7 Feb 28, 2002 is the deadline for public comment on a plan by DEC which will ban the development of ATV trails on state reforestation areas within Region 7. Region 7 Draft Recreation Plan (PDF 752kb) Link to sample letter text The draft Recreation Plan for Region 7 was released in December 2001, and contains a proposal ban to trails from being developed on state lands for ATVs and off-highway motorcycles. This is a the states ironic reaction to overwhelming requests for ATV access to be developed on state lands and is an outgrowth of the denial of the Treaty Line ATV Trail proposal denied in 2001 . TLUMP was a close call for those in state government and anti-access groups who opposed state land ATV trails, and likely drove the lock-down in the proposed Rec. Plan. Members o f the OHV community participated in the January 2000 meetings that lead to the creation of a draft recreation plan for state lands in DEC Region 7 which you can read in full in PDF at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dlf/publands/ump/reg7/recplan/reg7rec.pdf

Extractions: News-Herald Staff Writer September 23, 2001 The path jukes to the right, cutting between a thick oak and a large rock poking out of the ground, a geological crumb left over from the last ice age. Just past the rock, screened by some scrub brush and trees so it can't be seen until the last second, the path drops into a small stream bed and up the other bank. It keeps running up the side of the ravine, disappearing at the crest, like a roller coaster made out of dirt, roots and rocks. It's a shame no one can ride it. It's a shame it doesn't exist. Someday it might, if recreational vehicle riders are able to clear a path through state laws, rules and regulations. Land access for off-road recreational vehicles - snowmobiles, dirt bikes, ATVs - has come grudgingly in Ohio. Environmental group opposition, a lack of legal riding space and concerns over landowner liability have made it hard for riders to find fun and legal places to ride.
Extractions: Sunset Lake Park opened on February 11, 2000 with a dedication and grand opening event that showcased this one of a kind park located between the shores of Nueces Bay and Corpus Christi Bay between Portland and Corpus Christi. It is an ecologically rich wetland and saltwater lake habitat designed and operated to provide a broad range of outdoor recreational opportunities. Unique to Sunset Lake Park is a two (2) mile hike and bike trail constructed on an old roadway that transects one of the most diverse coastal marsh and wetland habitats anywhere along the Texas Coast. Nature interpretation boardwalks provide naturalists a view of hundreds of species of birdlife, roosting, nesting and feeding in diverse coastal marsh. Outdoors enthusiasts can fish, swim, canoe, kayak, sail, hike, bike or enjoy birdwatching. The project fulfills a City of Portland vision, where habitat protection and public use are cooperatively planned to improve the outdoor experience, while maintaining our pristine coastal resources.
