I was contacted by Gary Guare (Scout Ranger) about issues with Mountain bikers riding through the camp areas. Please stay out of the main camp areas. The main camp areas would be defined as the areas around the pool and pavilion, or any road that has tent platforms on it. Safe areas are south of Sharp Valley, the only trails north of Sharp that we are allowed to be on is North Valley and Lost Valley accessed from North Valley. If Scouts continue to to have issues with bikers riding through groups of scouts or bikers not stopping when asked by scouts, this is the message I was asked to convey to everyone “Please get the word out to your riders that have permits or this could end for all mountain biking of any type to the outside public”.
If you are riding and see scouts, turn around and go the other way.
I have attached a map showing the approved trails to ride during the summer camping season (July-August). Please review and pass on to anyone that may not be on my e-mail list.
