    There is an action alert going around right now, but here are the key asks if you go to the meetings or write a letter:

    All the trails east of ASP2 (except the Osgood loop) are currently ridden by cyclists and should remain open to bicycles.

    Implement the new trails that WNYMBA submitted in a 2007 proposal. These trails are designed to be sustainable singletrack.

    The master plan should not designate trails by use. The trails should be shared use, except for those designated as hiking-only. Allegany State Park should adopt a negative signage policy, making it easier for park visitors to understand which trails are open.

    Consider opening to bicycles selected trails that are now hiking-only on a case by case basis as appropriate. Possible candidates would be the Blacksnake Mountain or Eastwood Meadows loops.

    WNYMBA would be more than happy to expand its volunteer work already in the region to get the new trails built. WNYMBA has a long successful history of working with land managers in the region to develop and maintain sustainable trail systems.

    IMBA's online comment form is simple to use, but if you'd like to write your own letter, please send it to:
