North Fork Mountain Trail - IMBA Wild Ride Sunday Oct. 17th - 10am Redman Run Trailhead
The North Fork Mountain Trail is in the Spruce Knob/Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area. Call your representative in Washington, DC and ask them to oppose the pending Wilderness Bill and request to have them recommend that the National Recreation Area have stronger legislation that will protect this area from threats such as new road building, wind power, mining, horizontal drilling and timber management. The pending Wilderness bill will only fragment this trail system by making the northern end closed to bicycles and very hard to maintain because chainsaws will no longer be permitted for trail clearing or brushing. Stronger NRA language will also protect the amazing riding in Seneca Creek just below Spruce Knob, an area where bicycle access has been threatened in the past. There is a better tool for the job. Stronger NRA language that treats all non-motorized recreationalists fairly over the restrictive Wilderness designation which hurts everyones access to this amazing wild place.
