Tahoe Trails Conference Offers MTBers Opportunity to Influence Forest Service Plans

The timing for IMBA's Lake Tahoe Trails Conference (Oct. 1-3 at the Montbleau Casino) is well suited for mountain bikers who hope to influence the long-term plans that will shape trail development in the U.S. Forest Service's Tahoe Basin Unit. According to the Forest Service website, a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be issued this fall, and the office plans to receive comments from the public until Dec. 31. Planning efforts like the one the Tahoe Basin is conducting commonly shape how individual Forests handle trail development and recreation for a decade or longer.

You can nominate your favorite trail online — just be sure to complete the entire web form, which will require more than a few minutes of research and writing. The rides that make the cut will be announced in the fall issue of our quarterly print newsletter, IMBA Trail News.
