National forest planners may close motorized access to some roads

National forest planners are proposing to close motorized access to 55% of the roads in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

The rest of the article is here.

I don't have a huge opinion about this one way or another. I can be fairly moderate on some environmental issues. Others, like protecting a nest, I think is goofy.

But what struck me about this article,

The plan is designed to protect the ecology of the sprawling northern forest, but some motor sports enthusiasts and outdoorsmen say they will lose access to many remote areas.

Yeah? So what? Go somewhere else. It's not your "right" to have access to federally owned property. Get over it.
