As of today the gates on both airplane hill and university firepower are open for the summer wheeling season. The Airplane hill gates had already been open for the last week. University firepower didn't get opened up until today because of a active logging operation taking place near the trail. That part of the operation is now finished and the trail is open for summer recreational use.
These gates were financially supported by Piston's Wild Motorsports, Cascade Cruisers and the Pacific Northwest 4-Wheel Drive Association and these entities stand behind ODF in the decision to close these trails seasonally.
Please note that these gates were built and installed by two local off-road groups (Piston's Wild Motorsports & Cascade Cruisers) in cooperation with ODF and that the closure is supported and encouraged by these groups. Those same off-road groups have adopted these two trails and assist ODF with maintenance of the trails.

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
