Pisgah National Forest has announced plans to log 2,000 acres in the North Mills River Recreation Area, near Asheville, N.C. The area is one of the most popular mountain biking destinations in the country, as well as being a destination for anglers, hikers, and trail runners. According to the proposal, the Forest Service plans to convert a portion of the Trace Ridge Trail into a road for timber extraction. Several other popular trails will be affected by the proposed clearcuts. Forest roads used to access many trails in the area are scheduled to be closed for the duration of the timber project.
