Stateline Trail to Allow Mtn Bikes?



The Stateline Trail along Montana's western border with Idaho, known for its backcountry hiking and biking, faces potential changes due to a revised forest plan by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest.


The proposed plan may allow bicycles back on the Idaho side of the trail, drawing both support from mountain bikers and concerns from wilderness advocates.


The potential alteration of the Hoodoo Recommended Wilderness Area's boundaries has sparked debate over appropriate land use, with mountain bikers arguing for access to the legendary backcountry trail, while conservationists express concerns about impacts on the area's wilderness characteristics.
