Help Improve Mountain Biking in California National Forests

11.29.2006
Boulder, Colorado

Listening sessions could open the door for more and better trails

The Forest Service and IMBA California are co-hosting a series of public listening sessions to help shape new riding opportunities in the state's 18 National Forests. These sessions, held throughout the state, will result in improved mountain biking in California National Forests, including the possibility for new trails and better management.

No other state has hosted similar sessions and IMBA California is pleased to work with the Forest Service to better understand mountain bikers and the types of riding they want. California's National Forests are home to many famous riding destinations: Lake Tahoe, Downieville, Santa Barbara, Mendocino County, the Shasta-Trinity and others. Your involvement can enhance mountain biking in California and a model for other states to follow.
