Stay off private land

In response to the Greenhorn Creek problem with people driving motorcycles and 4-wheelers, and shooting in the area: The people driving in the creek bed and all over the place do not care about us or our property. These people drive off the creek bed onto other land, and even drive on our county roads with unlicensed vehicles. Maybe what we as landowners should do is get together and have them follow us over to Hansen Rock Pit area and see how he likes it. These people not only come from Nevada County, but they also live in Auburn, Loomis and Sacramento. Word has gotten around this is the place to have fun and do what you want. In 1978, Mr. Hansen worked with the sheriff and our supervisors and the Red Dog-You Bet Association. To help stop all of this. Mr. Hansen even offered to contribute a vehicle to use to patrol the area.

I say, if you don’t own the land, stay off of it. We live in a high fire area so that is also our concern when off-road vehicles drive all over. It is the responsibility of the off-roaders to know what land is private and which is public. The private land does not have to be posted or fenced. If you don’t have permission to be on that land (private), you are trespassing. Also some public lands have restrictions against four-wheelers, motorcyclists, etc., from using that land.
