Sign this compiled-signature petition resisting closure of two user-built mountain bike trails

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On a map of trails that the City of Durango most recently has slated for closure in the final draft of the Natural Surface Trails Analysis Report, at least two are worth asking them to save.

A freerider hitting a jump on the Dalla Mountain Freeride Trail. Don't let the City of Durango destroy this trail!

A freerider hitting a jump on the Dalla Mountain Freeride Trail. Don’t let the City of Durango destroy this trail!

Those include the Kitty Charmer Trail on Raiders Ridge by Horse Gulch, and the Phoenix Trail, aka the Dalla Mountain Freeride Trail. They’re both ridden primarily by mountain bikers, and they both are extremely popular for their naturally rocky terrain, drops and jumps.

Your signature is needed to voice opposition to these proposed trail closures and the loaded terminology used in the City’s draft Report, which uses subjective terms such as “damaged resources,” “habitat fragmentation,” “resource degradation,” and “soil erosion,” to name a few that have not been tested and have no scientific basis.

Once you submit your signature, the signatures get compiled, and then they all get delivered at once on April 30, 2015, the last day that the City is taking public comments on the new draft Report.

Check your email inbox after you sign the petition to click on the verification email. If the verification email does not show up in your inbox, check your spam folder just in case it got misclassified.
