Cooperation leads to new trail for public use

Due to the diligent, determined efforts of local equestrians, mountain bikers and the Forest Service, Nevada County now has an excellent new trail available for public use. Volunteers from the Gold Country Trails Council, Bicyclists of Nevada County and other groups completed the Pioneer Trail extension on Sept. 21. This incredible new trail represents an opportunity to experience the Sierra wilderness in our own backyard. This section of trail extends from the Sierra Discovery trailhead to the Spaulding Lake Trail.

As an advocate for trail access, I find it extremely encouraging when different user groups such as cyclists and equestrians can join efforts to build and share multiple-use trails. Such cooperation represents the best possible means of enabling low-impact back country recreation for all of us.
