It's been 3 months since I was there last, so I'm not sure my information is up to date. When I talked to a local out there, he told me the road itself was public but that's it. There's a lot of side roads and other land that is privately owned and there are literally a hundred signs posted on trees all along the road warning that the hills have eyes and any trespassing on the private land isn't tolerated. We stayed on the main road and drove to the end where there were signs saying dead end and a padlocked barrier. No worries for us, we just turned around and did the road in reverse.Hey Brian, I heard Richland Road was closed due to some land easement issues with property owners. Do you know anything different or have been recently?
Would love to go, just not sure it actually exists anymore.
It's a fun drive, and I hate there's so much controversy around the area. We can't control the actions of any of the yahoos that have given the place a bad rep, but this group can set a good example to try and balance it out. We tried to do our part by talking with anyone we saw and hauling out as much trash as would fit in a trasharoo. We need some kind of "Trail Conservancy" group to help us repair our standings with places like Richland. Volunteers?
