Mt bikers apparently satisfied with trail access in WA ??!!
Is that it? Dozens of comments from the moto and equestrian communities. Many comments from the hiking community and from the "keep everyone out except hikers" crowd. And only a few comments from Mt Bikers????
The RCO is major source of funding for new trails and trail maintenance projects and is going to use this data. It's time to take a couple minutes and comment here:
WA SCORP Town Hall
Then email the link to all of your friends and ask them to do the same.
Some background in case this is the first time you've heard of these townhall surveys...
The state's outdoor recreation strategic plan, called the State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), needs to be updated every 5 years to maintain our ability to receive federal funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. RCO uses these federal dollars for grants to local communities to build parks and trails, and conserve wildlife habitat. The SCORP addresses the future recreation needs of our residents and helps guide decisions about what projects to fund. Your input is crucial to understanding what's important to include in the plan.
Dave, EBextreme, Juice and I have requested your participation on MTBR. Evergreen and I have blasted it on FB. EB and I posted on the BBTC Yahoo thingy. And still only a couple comments!!!!??? Thousands of acres and thousands of feet of vert are open for new trail planning in just the Raging River alone. Then there is the rest of the DNR's Snoqualmie Corridor (Mitchell Hill, Echo Glenn, Middle Fork), Ollalie State Park, South Fork Snoq expansion, Reiter, more trails on Tiger. That's a real opportunity and it's just a small part of the state. But nothing will happen unless the RCO hears from us.
Take 2 minutes and comment here:
