The Forest Service is proposing to adopt and improve the Desert Mountain and Lion Lake trails near Coram as part of a larger timber management project. You might remember a call for comments on this earlier in the year - now the Forest Service has completed their environmental analysis, so it's up for comment again.
Show your support for the trails and submit comments indicating that you want the trails included in the forest trail system! Comments can be addressed to District Ranger Rob Davies, and can be emailed, with subject line "Hungry Lion Information" to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to read more on the topic, or look at maps of the project, there's more info here.

Dear District Ranger Davies,
Please accept these comments regarding the Environmental Assessment for the Hungry Lion Resource Management Project. Flathead Area Mountain Bikers (FAMB) supports the inclusion of the Lion Lake and Desert Mountain trails into the forest trail system. As such, FAMB supports alternatives 2 and 4 with respect to recreation. FAMB does not take any position on the road building, fuels treatment, or vegetation management aspects of alternatives 2 and 4.
As previously discussed, FAMB continues to be interested in assisting in the maintenance and upkeep of the Lion Lake and Desert Mountain trails, and we look forward to working with you and your excellent staff to ensure those trails provide a quality recreational experience for mountain bikers as well as other trail users.
Flathead Area Mountain Bikers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is working to promote mountain biking and improve trail access in the Flathead Valley.
