I'm an off-roader and a TU member. I didn't do anything with the Tellico but did invest a lot of time and money to build a number of trails for four wheelers and stream restoration at Hawk Creek in SE KY. Even with the Tread Lightly programs, marked trails and roadways, it took only about three years for the stream to be totally destroyed by the silt accumulation from the small groups seeking the off road thrills and driving through the stream bottoms and off the marked trails. The KDFW finally gave up as well with their stocking programs for Hawk Creek. Nature is a delicate balance, but is unfortunate that a small group doesn't want to play by the rules and everyone else must suffer.
