Below is the text of a press release today from IMBA (meaning its chapters WNYMBA and NAMBA, with assistance from our regional rep Anthony Duncan).
The TL;DR version is this:
- The Forest Service is proposing to open some trails (12 miles!) just south of Allegany State Park that are now closed to bikes.
- Wilderness groups oppose this.
Here's the forest service announcement: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/allegheny/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD511051
