Conceptual Trails Plan Being Prepared

The Trail Association, using a grant from the Shasta Regional Community Foundation, has contracted with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) to describe trail opportunities in the Mount Shasta area.  Recently, a draft plan has been produced that outlines 80+ miles of opportunities.  Of course, actual trail development will require environmental analyses, grant applications, and easements or permits to cross lands held by a variety of owners and agencies.  But, as Joe Wirth said as he stepped down as MSTA president, we need to “dream the impossible dream.”

Below is the July draft of the plan.  If you have any comments, they can be posted to our website or sent to skyler -at- cot.net.  We hope to finalize the plan this fall.
