Haven't been down the Brody in a while so I road the basic Echo Valley Loop Sunday evening before it got dark. First thing I noticed rolling into the Echo Valley lot was it appears there has been some more ATV usage. It would appear that they are staying on the fire road. Of course if the state did a proper job blocking the opening across from Silver City Lane then there probably wouldn't be a problem at all.
Blockage - didn't look like anyone has been using this part where it was logged last year. If they are using it, they usually come in from the intersection with the white trail, so this doesn't make any sense.
