Merli -Sarnoski county park is being butchered. They're doing "selective harvesting". I have a couple of pics to show the devistation. Here's a link to the pics and a small discussion about the mess. http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=177097
Despite what IMBA Pete has to say, This isn't a matter of coming back after a forest fire. There is something called prevention! That's what we want to do. I can go on for hours about this. I'll be up Elk on Sunday. If anybody wants to talk to me about Merli-Sarnoski (aka Fell Mtn.) Please stop in the patrol building at the top of the mtn and ask for Rob. If I'm not there I'll have a motorolla radio set at channel 4 code 11. Please sign this online petition http://www.petitiononline.com/100041/petition.html
and pass this news to your riding buddies and any local bike shops that travel the distance. Please include your locatoin you travel from and the time it takes to get here. Thanks, and I hope WE can save this Heroes Park. Rob Gregory ps. links to describe why WE refer to this park as "A Heroes Park" http://www.kensmen.com/ http://www.homeofheroes.com/moh/cita...i_a_merli.html
