Our Trail Ambassador program is moving right a long. We are in the final stages of clearing everything with the forest service. Once we have it approved we will put out the community for volunteers and support.
Bells on Bikes campaign has gone very well and has been well received with the bikers, horsemen and hikers. Remember if you hear a bell it is isn't to say get off the trail it is saying "Hi, I am letting you know I am here, so don't freak out".
We have had responses from all the user groups about dogs being off leash. We all love our dogs but it can be dangerous to them being off leash. Horses can spook and try to kick or stomp the dogs, bikers can run over them if they run out in front of them on the trail, and other hikers that are not dog friendly can kick them or hit them with their walking sticks. Please be respectful and keep your dogs on leash or at least hook them up when you see someone on the trail.
The Whiskey Off Road Bike Race is coming again this year... April 29-May 1st. This year the course changed a bit to include 396 - GoldWater trails. So from now until the race you may see more than usual amount of bikers on 396 and on Wolverton (9415). The weekend of April 1st is the unofficial pre-ride, it will be very busy out there, please plan accordingly.
