I would like to be able to use my mountain bike to hunt, maybe fence the trail so no "short cuts" would be possible. I do agree it makes me mad when people on bikes are inconsiderate so maybe compromise and make it legal for game carts. At least then I can pack all my gear for a week into BFE and not have to bring a fork and knife to pack out my animal. even if it was just for a weekend trip it would make it nice to get the animal out. i guess i dont see why a game cart would be so rough on the trail.

Yeah...and all that is left behind are beer cans/bottles, broken drive belts and other snowmobile parts...ect....ect. We have a family cabin up in Timberlakes and normally before the road up Lake Creek is open for cars/trucks and not enough snow left for snowmobiling, I'll hike up there with the dogs. There is so much trash and **** from the snowmobilers its not funny.

Why do we continue to have to make exceptions? Leave designated Wilderness areas just that...Wilderness.

I agree. Let wilderness be.

I don't want pedal bikes banned from our WMAs, just e-bikes. Rather disappointing to pedal out 6 miles only to have some guys on e-bikes pull up right behind you.

Do the regulations really allow for those, or are people just doing it regardless? I thought the regulations clearly prohibited any form of motorized travel on dikes.

That would make sense, but it's not the case. E-bikes are allowed as of now. I talked to the division, but too late too late for the RACs. Jason and Blair don't want them, so I think next year may be the last for them. Let's hope.

What's the issue with e-bikes on dikes?

What's next ban boat motors and only allow paddle power.

The problem with e-bikes is that they are motorized. Should we open the dikes to internal combustion engines? Is there a functional difference?

You're new around here, or you wouldn't be bringing up the motorless issue.

Yes. One of the unspoken rules of the forum is this:

If you want to discuss anything dealing with motorless restrictions on WMAs, either (1) don't; or (2) start a new thread on the topic, so you don't detract from other discussions. Pretty soon we'll be 14 pages into this wondering how the wilderness act relates to the WMAs on the Great Salt Lake.

I still think it's a great idea.
