New trail in Big Bend NP will not be open to mountain bikers, ending controversy

Big Bend National Park in Texas will be building a hiking trail near Panther Junction where there long had been discussions to build a multi-use trail open to mountain biking, Superintendent Bob Krumenaker announced Wednesday.


The National Park Service began planning for a trail in this area in 2010, when it published an Environmental Assessment for a new trail-based recreational opportunity. The original decision, documented in a Finding of No Significant Impact in 2012, was to build a 10-mile multi-use trail, which would allow mountain bike use.
