So a friend and I were talking recently and he mentioned the Jeeps up on STT while riding to Old Camp on a Saturday morning. We all know this is becoming a bigger and bigger problem with because of access from Cadillac Trail from Trabuco Canyon. With the speed in which the fire burning up in Idyllwild exploded, it got us thinking how quickly this could happen on our local mtn. Hot temps, super dry brush....all it would take is a hot exhaust pipe, muffler or catalytic converter.....and poof. Not to mention the number of fire pits an fire rings that are popping up along the route. The big problem is that the Cleveland National Forest does not control the land that Cadillac is on. Nor does it control the land at the very top of Cadillac. However we know that the 4x4's are going well into the CNF boundry. We all know about the Mercedes and the Jeep that were stuck up there and eventually went over the side. We also know that they made it up to the clearing above Old Camp.....what was once a great ribbon of singletrack is now a trashed fireroad. Last year a the Jeep that first cleared it's way to the top of Old Camp, got stuck on the side road that follows the power lines above Old Camp. In the 20 years I have been riding STT....motor vehicles have been prohibited. While there is nothing that the CNF can do on the private land on Cadillac and at the top....they should be able to shrink down the area at their boundry line....hopefully making it less appealing. I know a few of us have expressed this to people at the CNF.....but our single voices have been ignored. What am I asking? email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Send emails to these people at the CNF.....Darrel Vance is the District Manager for our area. Let them know that they can't just ignore this problem. Let them know that the problem needs to be solved before something happens....not after. Include pictures if you have them. Hopefully the voice of many will make more of an impact. It doesn't matter if you ride out there or not....if you are local or not. Please inundate them with requests. Thanks all.
