Help Preserve Mountain Bike Access on the Arizona Scenic Trail
The Coronado National Forest can be described as a mecca for mountain biking due in part to the hard work of the Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists (SDMB). The SDMB have built and maintained forty plus miles of epic singletrack as part of the Arizona Scenic Trail in the Coronado. The Coronado NF now has a proposed management plan that includes Potential Wilderness Areas that threaten mountain bike access to these trails where mountain bikers have spent thousands of hours volunteering their time and energy. IMBA and the SDMB are asking the USDA Forest Service to consider modifications to the proposal that would preserve cycling access to these trails and still protect the surrounding wild environment that makes them special.
SDMB and IMBA have submitted comments asking the Forest Service to consider companion designations in areas where mountain bikers enjoy singletrack trails.
