New Park Service MTB Policy and PEER's Trail Skunk Award

The Recreation HQ wants to applaud the new NPS mountain-bike policy which allows for unit managers to make site-specific decisions on mountain-bike trail opportunities.   HQ also wants to give out its 1st ever “Trail Skunk” award to PEER for its crisis mongering about this new policy.

PEER’s “Trail Skunk” News Release

News Article on new NPS Mountain Bike Plan

HQ believes there are a lot of good mountain-bike opportunities on public lands including lands managed by the National Park Service.  In many places, the OHV community is a co-user of those routes and we look forward to working with the mountain-bike community on joint recreation projects that benefit all user groups.  Redwood National Park is one unit where HQ believes there are a lot of future mountain bike trail opportunities on existing logging roads.  Also, new connector trails constructed between  skid roads could make for some great riding experiences.

Many dirt-bikers also mountain-bike such as new radio show host and MX star, Broc Glover.

HQ sends its best to IMBA and the mountain bike community on this important policy shift.
