FAMB Encourages Mountain Biker Comments on NEW TRAILS proposed in Columbia Falls - Crystal Cedar Project
The "Crystal Cedar Project" is a proposal to do some forest management in the area immediately north of Columbia Falls, and that means some logging activities as well as building NEW TRAILS! The project has around 25 miles of new trails proposed, and should be a great network.
Suggestions for your comments:
-I support this project because it'll offer a great resource for mountain biking, and it's something that's needed for the Columbia Falls community.
-The project will help relieve pressure from other heavily used trail systems at the north end of the valley.
-I'd like to see a bike specific trail included in the project, because it'll be a great resource, and it'll help reduce user conflicts elsewhere in the trail system
-I support the comments submitted by FAMB (which include a bunch of other bike friendly suggestions for the project that are too detailed to wade into here).
