Support trails to help Idaho businesses

    The main tourism attraction to Salmon, Idaho, has been river-based recreation for a long time. In the last couple of years, however, Salmon has seen a large rise in trail-based cycling tourism. Local advocates have helped establish well-marked area trails that riders of all levels can access and navigate with ease. Salmon riders also have developed a road ride and an MTB race that attracts cyclists from all over the country.
    Access to quality trails on public lands close to Salmon is key to expanding our tourism base and extending our tourism season. It is paramount for new businesses like mine, The Hub of Salmon, to survive. We sell and service bikes and skis, and serve pizza and beer. We also see the economic value of recreational trails in the Boulder-White Clouds as hands down the best riding opportunity available in the West.
    Please support local area trails, and in doing so, support new business development for rural Idaho communities including Salmon, Challis, Mackay, Stanley and many more rural Idaho towns that are en route to the Boulder- White Clouds.
