Washington State Parks is currently working to develop a new plan, and set direction for the next five years and beyond, for our State Parks. They are implementing a strategic planning process to explore options including a series of public meetings across the state starting May 17th.

It is critical that mountain bikers make a solid showing and let them know we want more bike trails in our State Parks. Please mark your calendar and attend at least one of the meetings. Get all the details here: Beyond 2013 - A Transformation Strategy
