What are some criteria that you believe should qualify a USGS mapped trail for closure to motorized traffic?

2 lane or 4 lane?
I was referencing "unimproved roads" based on 1997 USGS. I understand there a lot of variables there.

I say if you can see it on an aerial it shouldn't be closed,then again I know of one road that was only driven once about 65 years ago and it can still be seen on an aerial which is also a good reason we shouldn't be driving across bogs and meadows.

So many people seem to have the assumption that all this will ORV stuff grow over in 4 or 5 years, but I didn't expect one drive to have that impact remain after 65 years!
