The construction of unauthorized trails could be reduced by land agencies lending a more receptive ear to the needs of trail users. One major obstacle to this process is the ever-shrinking federal agency’s recreation budgets. Some mountain-bike trail groups and local federal land-management offices are developing innovative modes of financing trail development with the help of local and national business concerns.
My experience on non-motorized trails is most trail users tolerate other modes of trail use, and most trail users are well-behaved. It is the responsibility of all trail groups to educate their members about trail etiquette and tolerance, and police their own.
