Public Access to Public Land

Maintaining access to public land involves everyone. The main thing we do is to advocate to gain, re-gain, or retain access, such as with the Eagle Mountain Key Program, which has been highly successful since 2011.

But keeping that access means those using the land must do their part to demonstrate that wheelers are not the problem many perceive us to be. The image of the big 4×4 ripping up a marshland, or truck-driving partiers leaving a mess in the woods, is the image much of the public has of us.

The cleanups and similar public events help, but not everyone sees those, and instead form opinions based on the little things they see every day. The Wheeling Wisely document contains numerous suggestions as to how we can help to change this image.
