Backcountry Management Area - Lionhead

Jun 5, 2019

As part of a larger IMBA/Outdoor Alliance land protection and recreation campaign, our partners are collaborating to have a voice to advocate for USFS management plans for the Lionhead area to provide continued recreation opportunities for mountain bikers. Advocates are raising awareness of the value of keeping the experiences enjoyed on the Lionhead landscape the way they are today. The goal is to encourage the USFS to re-designate the Lionhead a "Backcountry Management Area" - a USFS land allocation that has been included in one of the Alternatives in the Custer Gallatin Forest Plan DEIS. The backcountry experiences these trails provide are indispensable to mountain bikers who have been maintaining the trails for over a decade in partnership with local equestrians.
