It’s the classic case of it only takes one person to ruin it for everyone. An ATV trail is now temporarily closed in Pembine, Wisconsin, due to a rider causing more than $25,000 in damage to a golf course that the trail goes through. Officials say that the closure of the trail means riders will not have access to the Four Seasons Resort.

A local group that calls themselves the Pemenee River Riders have stepped in and offered a $500 reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to the conviction of the vandal who caused the damage. Their Facebook post is full of comments from upset and displaced residents of the community who are used to having access to this trail. The takeaway here is, don’t be that guy. Drive responsibly and respectfully so we can all continue to have fun.
