Unfortunately! Cattle guards will never be permitted. The same as gates (We have already asked and were Denied). Basically! The Park sign and rules are Pointless and are there for show because NONE of the rules are enforced!!. No matter how many times we complain to the Parks Dept! Call the Police, and bring our concerns to the Park Board Nothing ever gets done. The Fast Tracking of the Horse Trail was the priority. We as Mtn Bikers made extensive concessions with the Parks Board and ITRA and offered to help them cut the Horse trail. In my opinion and my opinion ONLY!! The ITRA have not lived up to their promises. There is No signage, No Horse Trail markers and No Horse Trail maintenance at all and no meaningful repercussions for the Horse riders that willfully and repeatedly ride on the Mtb trails. The solution now lies with us Mtn Bikers, Any time you see a horse where they are not supposed to be! (The Mtb Trails and Skills area/ Main Parking lot) get out your camera and or Video and post those pictures or send them directly to Jeff C (Rangeline Nature Preserve) or I, Get clear pictures of faces and horses. We will forward every Horse and rider picture directly to the President of the ITRA for him to handle!
Irresponsible Horse riders are the same as Irresponsible Mtn Bikers! They make all of us look bad as a Whole!
