    Description

    One of the key reasons for the tremendous increase in mountain biking on the National Forests is the myriad of opportunities available for off-road cycling enthusiasts. The issues of land access, trail maintenance and conflict are reinforced as complex problems that will need to be resolved through the cooperation of land managers, user groups and clubs/organizations. Quantitative and qualitative methods for sampling, data collection, and data analysis were used to explore issues and problems related to mountain biking on the National Forests. The problems and issues uncovered in this study should not be allowed to develop into "win or lose" situations, but should be pursued through a community decision approach.
