    Our National Forests in NC have had some success (not entirely) by digging deep ditches alongside berms across access points where vehicular traffic is not allowed. These ditches are sometimes augmented by boulders placed to keep vehicles from going around them. It seems like a cheap, and relatively quick way to accomplish this. Of course, signage doesn’t work, and gates for temporary closure have to be installed in such a way 4-wheelers can’t go under or around them.

    You might think the DEC or APA would have evaluation and remedy for this kind of thing as an intrinsic part of the plan for when a new piece of land is acquired. Or is that too easy?
