what about the River Road?
The impact is greater than hiking. Bikes damage plants, the tires create ruts.
You have to ask - with all the current MTB opportunities available to MTBers at BBRSP and BBNP, why does IMBA think its important to focus its resources on building an MTB trail around Lone Mountain?
This is a toehold and sets a precedent for -- building MTB trails in other areas the Park (maybe some areas that aren't being "used" for anything) - expanding areas where MTBs may be used in the Park (existing trails?)- building new MTB trails in other units of the Park system- having outside groups representing xxx come into an NPS unit, do their own fonsi and build a facility for their xxxs.Fill in xxx with the outdoor instrument of your choice (MTB, ATV, whatever).

Now how about a proposal for more miles of 4wd roads :-)

This is nothing....up here in CO our "multi-use" trails are hiking/mountain biking/equestrian/dirt bike/ATV in some parks!Imagine taking a leisurely hike in a beautiful, serene forested area with the little birdies singing, chomping on your preferred energy bar of choice (mine is a good ol' Payday)....and a friggin dirt bike whizzes past you out of nowhere, never slowing down, and scares the partially digested energy bar of choice out of you! There's really not much warning. You would think you could hear them coming for a long time, but not necessarily...or perhaps it's that I have old lady ears?
