      Not earth-shattering at this point, but still positive movement . . .

      Any movement forward not backwards with the NPS is a good thing. They move at glacier speed. 😆

      There was not a lot in there about trails, sounds like access roads, etc were the main interest not singletrack. My guess is any singletrack that will be opened to us will be built new, not opening of existing trails due to politics. I am looking forward to that but I am not going to hold my breath. Big South Fork, Big Bend, Atlanta I think all allow some singletrack bike access so it is do-able.

      Interesting to say the least. One thing i believe without a doubt is had MTBs been around when the NPS was established we’d never have this issue because they would all have singletrack in them. I do find it hilarious that hikers and horses are allowed but bikes are not. Like the rubber on our tires are somehow more impactful than aggressive tread on rubber soled hiking boots or a horse that weighs no telling what tearing up the trails with each horseshoed step.
