PWM Do you think it will be a good thing. Suspect It will make for a very large place. Hope they don't slice it up and say you can here but not there. No

I am not sure if it is good or not. I read where they think it will be easier to manage the properties as one.

this is a clipping from the new state Greenways and Trails draft plan that is up on the TDEC website and available for public comment these next 30 days. There is a complete section on OHV.

you can go to the website and download it yourself @ http://www.state.tn.us/environment/recreation/greentrails.shtml

OFF HIGHWAY VEHICLES (MOTORIZED) TRAILS
Guiding Principle: The State of Tennessee should continue to work with agencies, communities and organizations to provide trails and greenways for user types with significant unmet needs.
The need to address motorized recreation is real in Tennessee. (cite from 2001 Tennessee Greenways and Trails Plan, page 44) More motorized dirt bikes, all terrain vehicles (ATV’s) and 4 x 4-wheel drive vehicles are sold each year and yet there are no new trails. The United States Forest Service has completed research on trail design techniques that can produce low maintenance, sustainable OHV trails.
The 2002 State of Tennessee Governor’s Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Study12 presented a high need for permanent, publicly owned OHV recreation areas which are located regionally so the OHV trail users can drive 1-2 hours to reach an OHV park. This study also emphasized that the estimated direct economic impact was $1.76 billion, with the total for both direct and indirect impacts being $3.43 billion (1998 prices). OHV recreation in Tennessee generates a large amount of tax revenues for local and state government through state gas taxes; state and local sales taxes and other permit and use fees. It is a big business in Tennessee.
The state legislature passed the 2004 Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Act which establishes an OHV program in the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency; however, it does not have a dedicated funding mechanism, such as an annual title fee or an annual user permit fee. TWRA oversees the OHV pilot program at Royal Blue Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and there are now over 30 miles of rehabilitated trails OHV trails for dirt bikes, ATV’s and 4x4’s. These initial trails at RBWMA have been signed and marked and a map is available at
Actions
1.
Create an equitable state funding mechanism to finance public land acquisition and trail development for Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails, focusing on a regional approach and involving local government entities, OHV users and public/private partnerships.
2.
TDEC will develop an inventory of all OHV trails (public and private) and place the information on the Greenways and Trails web page.
3.
The Greenways and Trails Roundtable group should discuss and propose solutions to address Tennessee’s OHV program based on a policy statement developed by all land management agencies and statewide OHV trail advocates
a.
This group should also review the TCA and the 2002 TDEC OHV Feasibility Study to clarify needed strategies or direction
b.
Discuss the feasibility and development steps for a Grant-in-Aid program targeting construction and operation of OHV trail systems by local governments to increase the number of OHV trails and promote local area economic benefits.
c.
Plan an OHV forum to continue the dialogue and address solutions among cooperating agencies
d.
Advocate the development of best management practices (BMPs) and environmentally sound construction designs suitable in Tennessee. 31

Off Highway Vehicles (Motorized) Trails Side Bar
One of the premier OHV areas in the eastern United States is the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System in West Virginia. Ten years in the making, legislation was passed in 1996 creating the Hatfield McCoy Regional Recreation Authority and included a seven county region in southern West Virginia. In 2007, this number increased to nine counties with six communities passing local ordinances to allow OHV use on local roads and thoroughfares. There are now approximately 1,000 miles of interconnected trails in the 9-county region.
The Center for Business and Economic Research Department of Marshall University in Huntington, WV, conducted an Economic Impact Study for the calendar year, 2005,13 of the Hatfield McCoy Trail. They highlighted the following results:

24,285 trail users purchased permits;

Trail users spent $2,798,036 in local communities;

146 Full Time jobs were created
These activities had a direct impact of $ 622,752 in state tax revenues. For more information on the Hatfield McCoy project, go to www.trailsheaven.com .
This type of system is slowly being created in the Campbell, Scott, Morgan and Anderson counties of Tennessee. The North Cumberland Purchase added over 122,000 acres of lands in Campbell, Scott, Morgan and Anderson Counties and these lands are contiguous to the Sundquist and Royal Blue Wildlife Management Areas (WMA). The private company, Brimstone Recreation, LLC manages and promotes the recreational use of 19,196 acres of land in Scott county, will be working with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to continue to manage this area for recreation activities.
