If someone approaches you while 'upgrading' just pretend like someone asked you to do it and your just doing your job.

Talk about a wacked-out set of circumstances. Their main problem was a nearby creekbed, but you know what happens when the enviros spot anyone moving dirt.

A friend of mine rented a bobcat and built a track on some land in Fremont, Ca (Bay Area/Silicon Valley area). Cops told them to keep out after the second time they rented the bobcat FWIW. My guess is it would really depend on the cop.

We did make a nice track but as we got cocky we started to Encroach on the other lands. Will one day as we were riding we were confronted by ARMED US forestry and US Airforce MP's. Ya thast right ARMED
Scared the living Poopies out of both of us.
To make a short story a little longer
It is a Feloney to deface Private or Gov owned property, we got off becouse back then we knew all the rangers and most of the Air force guys at the Radar station. But it was a lessson learned.
We did get written permision from the Private land owner to ride on his and do what we wanted.
But the Gov side we had to put it back as it was, Summer lost to clean up...
You shoudl be able to get information at the accessors office on who owns the land
Its Only illegal till ya get caught
If its fed land, you bet your sweet lil but you will be prosecuted (Thanks Greenies)

Now I did see 10 acres in central oregon, in the middle of no where for $6000. And was located very close to a large existing OHV/ORV riding area, hhhuuummm. Six buddies, a grand a piece, rent a dozer, own the land. I could be on to something here?

Messing w/ USFS property like that is probably not a good idea.
I was considering more or less the same thing on some BLM open space but even that seems a bit foolish. But that doesn't mean I won't do it.
Bobcats have headlights, ya know.
In all seriousness, things like that just give riders a bad (worse ??) reputation. Just my two cents...

Maybe you can do what Johnnie Jihad Walker pleaded
Its a religious thng, ya know all you were tryng to do is follow the vision you had in a dream and put a shrine on the land for all dirt bikers to have there own personall Mecka.
A place that every dirt biker must travl to to pay homage too to be a good dirt-bikelum

You should see my regular riding area. Parts of it are a common dumping ground. The occasional car, but mostly leftover building materials and landscaping trash (and millions of broken bottles).
Along with the occasional burned tire. Every get tangled up in a steel belted radial, without the rubber? That can leave a mark, not to mention deposit a snarl of twenty wires around your sprocket and hub. Wire cutters are a must have.
I guess the flip-side of that is that, obviously, if nobody is going to police it for illegal dumping, and most of it is public (BLM) land, then nobody is going to care if we ride there either.
