That is right on! If you don't like a trail...build your own or ride another trail. We spend hours building and working on trails and people that don't spend any time doing that need to understand the work that has been done.

For the most part in Michaux, bikers are not the problem 95% don't do any work . As of late the horses are becoming the biggest issue. I predict by mid summer a Few of the prime Norchaux trails are going to be destroyed.

Is that first pic in the article of a race promoter removing rocks from Michaux trails?

95% of the people everywhere don't do most of the work...that is the point. When said 95%ers want to move an obstacle so that they can ride without going around is the issue the article points out.

The article is BS! The author is biased! There are no facts! Research before you post an article!

What the trail ferry isn't real? Why didn't my parents ever tell me? Going to go cry myself to sleep.

So trails get magically built by trail fairies who are members of secret-unicorn-societies and ride pink bikes?

It makes perfect sense!

When people become frequent visitors to an area, they begin to think of it as their "own", whether it is their neighborhood, a local bar, or a state forest. In the case of public lands used for recreational purposes, the reality is that we are borrowing the land and sharing it with other people, hikers, bikers, horseback riders, ATV enthusiasts, you fill in the blank. If we want to continue to be able to enjoy public lands, we need to remember that we are only visitors. If we care about the places we love to visit, then we need to work to make sure those places remain available. This means working with agencies that maintain public lands, acting responsibly when we visit public lands, and keeping a vested interest in the current and future use of those lands. We also need to remember that, as a club, comments posed by MBM members, and others, are available for the world to see and will serve as a judgement tool by those who want to join us and work with us, whether we like that or not. That is the reality.

I'd like to just delete all the other garbage comments here and leave only Brooke's comment. Those are very wise words.
Thanks Brooke!
