ACTION ALERT! Please Comment: Bike Trail in Big Bend Park!

September 24, 2014

From our friends at BikeTexas!


Dear Cyclist,

Now’s your chance to be part of National Parks history.

The US National Parks System (NPS) is considering a new trail in Big Bend National Park that could be the first mountain bicycle trail in the entire NPS system. Please click here to submit your comments to NPS by Friday, September 26, in support of this new trail.


The NPS is considering three options:

• Option A is no change, i.e., the NPS would not construct a new trail.

• Option B is construction of a ten-mile trail that allows bicycle AND hiking traffic. If built, this would be the FIRST off-road bicycle trail in the NPS system.

• Option C is construction of a ten-mile trail that allows only foot traffic.

Click here to learn more about the new trail and submit comments at the NPS website. (Descriptions of the trail options begin on page 19 of the PDF document.) Thank you for making Texas a great place to bike and walk!
