The proposed Green Trail would be suitable for low-intermediate mountain biking and other non-motorized uses. In addition, an approximately 0.65 mile segment of the existing Hike-a-Bike trail would be re-routed to the Green Trail, and decommissioned.
Big Bear Mountain Resorts would be authorized to exercise exclusive use of this trail during operating hours of the Bike Park, and use during this time could be limited to down-bound mountain biking for Bike Park pass holders. Outside of Bike Park operating hours, the trail would be open to non-motorized use by the general public in either direction.
Construction and opening of the trail is proposed for Spring 2015. Additional information including the project map can also be found at on this web page:
We want to hear from you, your public comments may be electronic or in writing and are due by May 4, 2015.

About the U.S. Forest Service:
The mission of the Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world. Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute more than $13 billion to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands provide 20 percent of the nation's clean water supply, a value estimated at $7.2 billion per year. The agency has either a direct or indirect role in stewardship of about 80 percent of the 850 million forested acres within the U.S., of which 100 million acres are urban forests where most Americans live.
