Join IMBA in Support of the Friends of Allegheny’s Bike Friendly Citizen's Wilderness Proposal

Public Lands Initiative Campaign

The Allegheny National Forest is home to great East Coast riding that will soon be protected by an expansion of the Heart’s Content National Recreation Area, a companion designation being used by the Friends of Allegheny Wilderness. This area is home to many established trails and holds great potential for the next epic East Coast trail, the Tanbark Trail. The adjustment of the National Recreation Area boundary to include the Tanbark Trail allows the Hickory Creek Wilderness area to expand as well, lending important protections for the trail. Additionally, The Friends of Allegheny Wilderness are supporting the creation a new model mountain bike trail system in the Jake’s Rocks area of the ANF. This presents an ideal opportunity for mountain bikers around the nation to support a bike friendly land protection proposal.
