For the last year or so I have been enjoying some of the ‘lesser known’ MTB trails in Big River and have not ridden some of the old favorite loops in a long time. For a change, this weekend I parked off exit 6 (Rt. 3) and rode down Burnt Sawmill past where the old boat used to be parked and took the first trail right and followed it all the way to the back of the BR. Having not been out that way in a while, it was very clear from the start what kind of damage has occurred from all the dirt bike use in this area. I do not believe this was caused by the Legal Enduro that was held last weekend. Anyone who rides BR enough has seen the culprits. I am referring to the KTM riding guys (I came across them twice on Sunday). It is the same guys week after week. I can understand their plight, as there is NO Legal dirt bike riding in RI. What I cannot understand is why they must roost up all the main connectors and multi use trails turning them into sand pits. It’s not like they do not have their ‘own’ illegal trail networks out there (which seem to grow all the time). It is a shame the MTB crowd must resort to trying to hide their favorite trails in an effort to save them. So my question to anyone who may know is this: Has anyone talked to the KTM guys and tried to come to some sort of understanding about trail use. Has anyone reported their activity to the appropriate authorities? Feel free to discuss the options…..
