A Final Word For Mountain Bikers

Bike Guide/Brad Odekirk

Many miles of trails are closing to mountain bikes due to the irresponsible behaviors of a few.

But, trails are also opening to bikes because of the actions of many concerned riders. What it really boils down to is “riding right.” You can minimize your impact to local trails and keep them open to mountain bikes by following the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s rules of the trail: Ride Only on Open Trails, Leave No Trace, Control Your Bicycle, Always Yield Trail, Never Scare Animals, Plan Ahead.

By following these common sense tips, you are contributing to the protection of Summit County’s wonderful trail system so what you are riding today will be here to enjoy for many years to come.
