When will we know the outcome of this meeting? Give us our "legal" singletrack back, it's EXTREMELY dangerous for hikers, bikers, pets off leash as well as those families w/children blocking the trail entirely oblivious to bikers "having to" share the trail. When the gates first went up and bikers and hikers were forced to share the same trails it became mayhem, it was fine on the climb however, downhill (EVEN WHEN RIDING AT A SLOW SPEED) became increasingly dangerous UNTIL eventually the bikers decided to ignore most of the signs/gates, synergy between bikers/hikers seems to be almost back to normal. I'm hoping for a solution SOON!

Did you attend the meeting Mountain Biker Chix??

If the past is any indicator, the horse owners attend the park meetings and cut the legs out from under any of the plans to allow cyclists onto the trails. Because they are present in greater numbers then cyclists, and vocal, it is difficult to ignore them. The way to see your trails back open is to attend and encourage your friends to join you. Make your requests LOUD and frequent
