Re: Fwd: Urgent attention needed at Castle Rock State Park

If you are talking about the Castle Rock State Park above Redding, we rode
there 5 years ago through on the Pacific Crest Trail and learned that
Horses have been excluded out of Castle Rock Park in Northern California
except for the Pacific Crest Trail. We did ride through and the state park
let us camp below by the access trail to the PCT.  We had several rounding
confrontations with the Park Director, because George went to the Director
of State Parks and Rec. Don Murphy and got a campsite that we were first

They ( the rangers) claimed they sent out 200 letters of inquiry before
making the decision to exclude horses and they got only 2 answers back.
They also told us when we rode there that they would consider having a
horse camp to access the connecting trail to the PCT if a horse group would
work with the US Forest Service to plan and build a horse camp.
If we can get someone interested we can do it.  Any suggestions?
