    Help save some Nederland trails

    Boulder County has recently acquired some large private parcels in the Nederland area and word is that they intend to immediately close several of the existing trails until a master plan (with associated studies) can be implemented. These are beautiful multiuse XC trails that have existed for decades with very little impact. Most know them as "Sherwood Forest". Please help the area residents be heard by BCPOS with your support on this petition. We only have a day before management decisions will be made.

    Change.org Petition

    Even if you don't ride these specific trails, keeping them open helps keep the user concentration spread out from the ones you are riding.

    Thank you all.. and to answer a question I was asked - for those not as familiar with the area, this has nothing to do with the West Mag stuff. No user group politics on this one. I think anyone that enjoys mountainbiking is on the same page regarding these.

    Great news. Due to the outpouring of community concern, the BCPOS has stated they "will not be asking POSAC to take any action tonight". Several issues will still need to be addressed in the near and long term, but no immediate changes or closure expected now from tonight's meeting. Excellent rally by NATO, some BMA folks and the community.. and big props to BCPOS for listening!

    Thank you to everyone that got involved. If you haven't already, there is still time to add your comments on the petition as long-term management decisions will still need made.

    The trails are in the Caribou area.

    And I should temper my earlier positive comments in that this is only a (very) temporary stay. BCPOS staff continue to have concerns regarding watershed impacts and connector access so ultimately they could still recommend a closure to POSAC. Community input and involvement will continue to be important going forward if we want to see these remain.

    Good to hear. Thx for putting the petition together. Now that ive voted to keep the trail, i feel like i should go ride it, any recommendations on a 15-20 mile loop to connect it with?

    My last ride in Ned was eldora to WP, i havent ridden the north side from town. Looks nice.
