The Northcoast Cliffhangers 4X4 Club
a phone interview with Steve Bigham, Pres. Northcoast Cliffhangers 4X4 Club, I heard several comments on the alternate "SSSolution" to the Tollowa Dunes / Kellogg Beach (TD/KB) "worm trail".
arguably represent one of the largest demographic groupings in our Del Norte community. They have shown their muscles at several
evening meetings held by such organizations as the Federal Forest Service and more recently the State Parks Workshop on the
TD/KB. It is surmised that this OHV activist stand is responsible for the reluctance of SS et al on the Board of Supervisors
from holding open "Town Hall" meetings in the evening.
reports; that the proposed SS alternative is not a substitute for the ocean beach and sand experience of "worm trail". The TD/KB area is far safer for
young and inexperienced riders making it great for family, elderly and handicapped use. Steve said; he is familiar with the proposed alternative, it is narrow and dangerous in several places.
Also much, if not all, is already designated as county road and open to street legal vehicles like 4X4 trucks and jeeps.
also noted; that for an "upland" experience the Northcoast Cliffhangers 4X4 Club has already adopted "Rattle Snake Ridge"
and is presently working on it for OHV use. However, if the Board of Supervisors wanted to offer the SSSolution as an adjunct
to the TD/KB and "Rattle Snake" experience they should contact the club and they would be more than willing to talk.
