Document Description
Bill's Trail is currently used by equestrians and hikers only. More recently mountain biking interest groups have petitioned to open Bill's Trail to biking as well. DPR proposes to change the use of Bill's Trail to allow mountain biking in addition to hiking and horseback riding making the trail consistent with the Department's policy to construct multiple use trails. In order to convert the trail to Class I that would allow mountain biking, DPR must "catch up" with the deferred maintenance that has narrowed the trail, reduced drainage function, allowed exotic species to flourish and reduced user safety. Bill's Trail has a constructed width of 48", the standard for multi-use trails in State Parks and continues nearly four (4) miles between the trail head in Devil's Gulch and the junction with the Barnabe Fire Road at 1,160-foot elevation.
