Malheur National Forest in eastern Oregon is working to create a new bike trail system with the help of Recreational Trail Program (RTP) funds.
Jodi Bellefeuille, the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Grant Coordinator, has shared in progress photos from the Magone Lake Mountain Bike Trail System project. The Malheur National Forest is working to develop this bike trail system. Included in the photos are USFS staff, and volunteers from the Blue Mountain Land Trust’s Blues Crew & Eastern Oregon Trail Alliance working on this ongoing project.
Public Lands and local parks play a vital role in the physical, social and economic well-being of our communities. The Outdoors for All Act will help underserved communities access parks and public lands, protect areas sacred to Indigenous peoples, ensure clean and safe drinking water, and promote the outdoor recreation economy.
This survey aims to quantify the capacity of the trails community to build, maintain, and develop trails now, and to provide input to GAOA and LWCF funding.
This study aimed to compare conventional mountain bike and eMTB use. This was done by investigating 2 questions: (1) What proportion of exercise response is retained for an experienced mountain biker while using an eMTB when compared with a conventional mountain bike? and (2) What are the perceptions and beliefs of experienced mountain bikers toward eMTBs both before and after riding an eMTB?
The primary purpose of this paper is to identify and review studies evaluating the effectiveness of programs to increase access to trails and trails use (physical activity) among youth from under-resourced communities.
