Dear Planning Team:
This letter is submitted on behalf of the California 4 Wheel Drive Association (Cal4Wheel) and its membership concerning the request for comments for the California Department of Parks and Recreation Red Rock Canyon State Park General Plan Revision. Cal4Wheel represents clubs and individuals within the State of California that are part of the community of four-wheel drive enthusiasts.
While the main focus of Cal4Wheel is to protect, promote, and provide for motorized recreation opportunities on public and private lands, many of our members participate in multiple forms of recreation; including but not limited to hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, horseback riding, bicycle riding, and gem and mineral collection.
We recognized the positive health and social benefits that can be achieved through outdoor activities. We also recognize that motorized recreation provides the small business owners in the local communities a significant financial stimulus. And, our members are directly affected by management decisions concerning public land use.
