FNBP Trails Plan Timeline

Greetings Trail Advocates,

I would like to remind everyone how far Anchorage mountain bike advocacy has come in the past 3 or 4 years. We have organized as a user group and have gained the respect of other park users and Parks & Recreation. Without their support we wouldn’t have been able to build Brown Bear and now the new network of singletrack. I am very appreciative of the partnerships that we have developed. Once the go-ahead was given to begin construction of the news trails, Parks & Rec threw 100% of their cooperation into the project. They have donated in-kind, approximately $33,000 worth of services and spent many hours with us out on the trails.

The FNBP Trails Plan is another step in the process of thoughtful management of the park. Thanks for your support, and thanks for participating!
