That's something, but you need to DO something. We've had a lot of success opening new MTB trails in Buffalo Creek, up here in Roosevelt NF, Ft. Collins and Larimer County, plus up in Curt Goudy, etc because of the trail work days and bike patrols. The trail managers definitely remember and weigh the opinions of people they see all the time making their job easier. Lobbying Congress (e.g. IMBA for me) is a piece of the puzzle but top down isn't the most effective at keeping local trails open.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
