SAVE CURLY'S DOWNHILL!

THE UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE- KETCHUM RANGER DISTRICT- AND SNRA ARE REROUTING CURLY'S TRAIL IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE THE TRAIL MORE RIDEABLE. THEIR INTENTIONS ARE NOBLE AND THE WRBC SINCERELY APPRECIATES THEIR EFFORTS THROUGHOUT OUR TRAIL NETWORK. BUT WITH THE LACK OF DOWNHILL/STEEP/AGGRESSIVE TRAILS IN THE VALLEY, CURLY'S STANDS AS THE ONLY TRUE "DOWNHILL" TRAIL IN THE VALLEY. LOSING THIS TRAIL WOULD TAKE AWAY A UNIQUE OPTION IN THE VALLEY AS WELL AS ONE OF THE ONLY TRAILS RIDEABLE WHEN TRAIL CONDITIONS ARE SATURATED. THIS PETITION'S AIM IS TO SHOW THE KETCHUM RANGER DISTRICT THAT THERE ARE A GREAT NUMBER OF MOUNTAIN BIKERS IN THE VALLEY WHO LOVE CURLY'S CHALLENGING PITCHES. WRBC PROPOSES AN ALTERNATIVE TO THIS PROJECT: 1) LEAVE CURLY'S DOWNHILL ESSENTIALLY AS IS. 2) CREATE A LESS AGGRESSIVELY PITCHED TRAIL (AS IS IS PLANNED) TO ALLOW RIDERS THE OPTION OF PEDALING SINGLETRACK TO TOP OF CURLY'S AND EAST FORK OF BAKER ROAD. DOING THIS WILL PRESERVE THIS UNIQUE DOWNHILL AS WELL AS SERVE THE PURPOSE OF CREATING A MORE MODERATELY PITCHED OPTION FOR UPHILL AND DOWNHILL TRAFFIC.
