Im not sure if it will effect the forum get together in August as i'm not sure exactly what parts they closed down. I'd definately look into it though if you guys still plan to go down there! I remember reading something about it either on this forum or one of the Wrangler forums.

All I said is that I think they closed down parts of GWNF for off roading due to under age kids out there drinking and wheeling. That and damaging the property. What does that have to do with me and drinking?

PATTERSON ROAD CLOSED DUE TO OFF-ROAD DAMAGE

New Castle, VA --- The Forest Service has placed an emergency road closure on Patterson Creek Road
in Craig and Botetourt counties. Over the past two weekends, people driving off-road vehicles have
caused approximately $30,000 worth of damage. Law Enforcement Officers have cited 39 individuals
for multiple illegal offenses. John Price, the Law Enforcement Officer on scene, assures the public “We
are committed to stopping this abuse of the national forest and we intend to make those convicted pay to

repair the damage.”


The damage to the environment is extensive. Illegal cross-country travel has destroyed vegetation and
wildlife openings. Mud-bogging in the creek, riparian areas, and on the road itself caused extensive
erosion. Five days after the damage occurred, the creek remained cloudy from sedimentation affecting
water quality in Patterson Creek. It will take 6-12 months before the area will once again provide food
and nesting benefits for wildlife. Eastern Divide District Ranger Cindy Schiffer states “We are deeply

saddened that people would destroy our public lands and we will implement measures to ensure this
doesn’t happen again.”


Locked gates, restricting 6.5 miles of Patterson Creek Road (FDR 184) in Botetourt County, are now in
place near the intersection of SR 612 and on the O & I Road (FDR 5020) near the intersection with SR
818. Gates will remain locked until further notice.

Damage to roads during the winter and spring is a long-standing problem. Most road damage occurs in
January, February and March when roads are soft from freeze/thaw patterns followed by spring rains.

Even legal activities and proper use of the roads may cause damage during this time period. Ranger

Schiffer is considering implementing seasonal road closures on most Forest Service roads on the Eastern
Divide Ranger District from January through March of each year.
