The gates are still locked but some timber companies, specifically rayonier, is subleasing their land to individuals for private recreational use. The individuals who sublease are allowed to put their own locks on the gates and freely drive the roads. There are a great number of roads that do not have gates on the backside of their property and these people now have vehicle access, although not legally, to many many miles of walk-in only area. It is just not right. Not to mention if there are not survey markers out in the roads that are being leased it is very difficult to tell where one land stops and another one starts. Pretty sore subject in southwest Wa right now and a lot of people are pissed. Hopefully rayonier will pull their head out and do the right thing.
