Letís share our trails


One reason I love our valley is because of our multi-use trails—sharing the trails with mountain bikers, hikers, horseback riders and motorcycles on designated trails. Most people are courteous and respectful of each other.

The motorcycles carry in saws to cut deadfall off the trails in areas the Forest Service has not yet reached. The horses' sharp hooves break up the slick trails created by mountain bikes, making it less slippery for hikers. I, like many others, love to mountain bike but I know we need to be extra careful coming up fast on hikers and people on horses.

I would like to think we can all work together so no one is eliminated from our gorgeous trail systems. I've noticed that mountain bikers from other areas are not used to sharing trails, as they are used to having their own designated trails. So let's dialog and share our stories, listen up and be aware of each other. Life is good and we are very lucky. Happy trails!
