Sparta Mountain WMA Forest Stewardship Plan

We reviewed the plan and did not see any policy changes related to off road bicycle access or development of trails. There will be logging and it may on trails you use, but any closures or disruption should be temporary.
The plan is available at the link below and comments are due 3/1/16.

Mountain Lakes

Representatives of JORBA attended the Mountain Lakes Woodlands Management Committee meeting to offer their trail maintenance services in benefit to the users of Richard M. Wilcox Park. The meeting proved to be constructive for the initial steps of starting dialog and establishing a working relationship with Mountain Lakes. This park is contiguous with the Tourne, but has a limited multi-use trail policy.
