Here's a little ANF Jeopardy for you.

Is the Twin Lakes trail legal to mountain bike on or not???

www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/allegheny/recrea...?recid=6113&actid=24

"Forest Supervisor Closure Orders prohibit the use of mountain bikes"
but
"Mountain Biking
Joint use with hikers"

We can only hope their site gets hacked into, maybe it will make some sense.
This is about the 6 or 7th time I have seen this, a few other times I asked them about it and they just updated the sites to outlaw biking, so don't ask and just ride.

pmac and anyone else.. it's not dead yet,,, if that NEPA gets completed with no hangups... then the next steps will fall into place.. but without the ANF folks doing the NEPA,,, we can't collect $$, grant write, beg or borrow,, unless we know the green light to build is going to happen.....

It will be interesting to see the the $70k IMBA flow based design the donors already paid for be built by hand, but I am ready to dig.

IMO unfortunately FG has little inside info since he has excused himself from the meetings and discussion... (totally within his right),, the 2 million price tag is only if we went with the contractors that proposed the design.. there is no current contract to build, and at our last NAMBA meeting things were discussed what we (NAMBA) will agree to and what we won't. so at least in my mind that $2mill figure is old news... I'm still hopeful that the NEPA study will get done, and then we go from there...

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
