HN890 – Seems like it's an alternative to HN904 – most likely will superseded unless a compelling reason can be shown that it doesn’t provide something that HN904 does.

DJ... Each of the trails on the laundry list of messages that I sent today were "red" trails shown on the map, and are ALL of which we use on a regular basis. After going over the map, it is quite apparent that ultimately the goal here for the BLM is to close all or any connecting trails. They say that "there are still plenty of trails that will remain open", but none of which appear to connect to others. We are avid off-road riders (Ranger, quad and dirt bike) and we ride on the noted "red" trails that connect to other main trails as much as 3-6 days a week, even during the summer months. We ride from the North end of town to the South and sometimes beyond, into the Havasu Heights area, etc.... So, the list can get quite lengthy. In all honesty, we consider all or most of the off-road area on the East side of Hwy 95 our beautiful backyard. We do our best to keep it clean (we pick up trash that people dump out there) for ourselves and others to enjoy.

To Whom this may concern:
I would like to request reconsideration of the intended closure for trail #HN904. This trail is one of many that our family use on a regular basis and is great to get out of the city to hike trails with our dogs and grandchildren. Our off road vehicles take us to areas that offer exposure to the many things that we enjoy about living in the desert.

We feel that it is another form of revenue for our city. Because of the off-road accessibility of Lake Havasu City, it has brought businesses that offer expertise in off-road equipment and exploration, which also means jobs. We own a business in Lake Havasu that manufactures parts that are used on off-road vehicles. The closure of these trails pushes visitor’s of our city away. These people buy merchandise, dine and stay in hotels in our city and if the simple things that draw them here are cut off or restricted, they stop visiting and local residents go elsewhere and spend their money in other areas.

Your reconsideration of keeping trail #HN904 open is appreciated.

Regards,
F D-I
