That's not just an engine whining


If the Hidden Gems wilderness proposal is fully imposed, snowmobiles and motorcycles and mountain bikes will hardly be “locked” out of the national forest.

They'd still have a million acres of where they actually go available. A million acres. That's a lot of room to ramble.

…The majority of forest users who prefer foot travel can't have part of the forest free of the noise and such that comes with these vehicles? Truly wild country, where the wildlife and forest come first and human incursion second, really must bow to users who already have a million acres in the White River National Forest alone at their disposal?
