General comments regarding restoration or recreation opportunities from the 6-28-11 public meeting in Sequim, and from email submittals to the Forest Service –
           1. Any road decommission in watershed consider converting the road to trail. Recreation would be improved with proper trail conversion. Include curves, grade reversals, chokes, and other trail features.
           2. Consider loop opportunities for recreation (stock, mountain bike, OHV) anywhere in watershed.
