North Carolina Mountain Bikers Shut Out of National ForestBy Michael Frank on February 14th, 2013
It’s probably temporary, but a guerrilla trail network in the Croatan National Forest has been shuttered to mountain bikers. And although you probably think of Pisgah as home to North Carolina singletrack these trails are hard by the Intercoastal Waterway. According to the Forest Service it’s a problem because building the trails may have disturbed both an ancient African-American cemetery and a Tuscarora Indian settlement from the 1500s. The Forest Service will inspect the trail system and promises some resolution in the next few months. Via Sun Journal.
