    Riding Single-Track in National Parks

    As they say, "Can't never could"...

    America’s National Parks Get Their Real First Mountain Bike Singletrack

    An 8- to 10-mile trail on the park’s northeast boundary is up for public comment now, but all user
    groups seem to be in agreement on it: Mountain bikers will give up access to Sal Hollow, which will cede
    back to a horse trail, and in exchange they’ll get their own new trail, which is tentatively called Big Hollow.
    And not only that, but there’s potential for dozens of additional miles of singletrack in the remote,
    northeast section of the park.


    And before someone says it:

    It’s also worth noting that at a time of national budgetary crisis the approximately $1 million plan was
    achieved entirely through citizen-action groups raising “friends of the park” funds privately. This
    truly isn’t “your tax dollars at work,” but friends of Mammoth Cave dedicating parts of their busy lives to
    make their park stronger.

    Although most national parks prohibit biking in the backcountry, we offer a few—often on rehabilitated
    logging roads where tires cause less erosion damage and where routes are wide enough to safely
    accommodate multiple uses.



    Obviously not single-track, but good to know.

    "often", not always

    some of it is singletrack, never having been a road

    my brother lives in eureka, ca and says it's all singletrack, even where it was once a road
