It must be made perfectly clear that fatbike riding had not reached the point where a special order was needed. In that respect the Gallatin is no different than the Lolo Forest. At the time I write this, March 19, 2014, Gallatin area bicyclists still do not know what had prompted the special order, or why the order was kept secret for a year. We are fairly certain that there has been a misinterpretation of some phrases and charts in the 2006 Gallatin NF travel plan. Let the people of Missoula, Hamilton, and Kalispell beware, when the Forest travel plans are being created and reviewed, make sure each plan clearly treats your preferred activity with fairness.
