The US National Park Service proposed a rule in 2008 that would make it easier for individual parks to open trails for mountain biking. The announcement of the rule caused a rift in the outdoor community. Mountain bikers obviously support the rule change while some hiking groups don’t. Now is the time to voice your own opinion. We’ve entered a 60-day public comment period which will help the park service in its decision to make the rule change official or scrap it altogether.


Let your opinions be known. These are your national parks.


Tell the NPS what you want them to do here.
