Let your voice be heard! Attend CVNP trail plan open house.

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park has announced three dates for the first public input session for the new Trail Management Plan (TMP) and Environmental Impact Study (EIS). The dates are:
  • Thursday, February 11th, 2:00-4:00 pm
  • Thursday, February 11th, 6:00-8:00 pm
  • Saturday, February 13th, 10:00 am-noon.

The location for all three sessions is:
Happy Days Lodge
500 W. Streetsboro Rd. (Rt. 303)
Peninsula, OH 44264

This is the perfect time to let your voice be heard. We strongly encourage all interested trail users, especially mountain bikers, to understand the process and get involved in a creative and productive manner. The park wants to hear your IDEAS. What’s most important are what the park refers to as "substantive comments." That means that you tell the park not only that you want trails for off-road cycling, but WHY you want trails for off-road cycling. For example, maybe you think there are a lot of health benefits or maybe you think it makes the region a better place to live. Think creatively and don’t be afraid to express your opinion!

You can read more about this event, and what the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association has been doing to help promote mountaing biking in the CVNP (as well as other state and local parks), see this page on the CAMBA web site.
