Well said, Mark A.
All users--both hikers driving to accessing Blacktail (end of both Lakeside-to-Blacktail and Foys-to-Blacktail trails) and motorized users--need to keep their speeds down to keep dust down for residents. If the road gets that popular, the county should consider dust mitigation.
Motorized users also have an obligation to be good stewards of our public lands--no littering, pick up after others, quiet exhaust systems, and good trail ethics.
The Blacktail-Wild Bill National Recreation Trail was established in 1972 by the Kalispell and Polson 4x4 clubs. The main trail system is far from new--actually 40 years old.
Nice, biased article, Alex.
Maybe it would be better for all involved if the Island Unit were sold off to private developers so billionaires can bulid their homes up there.
They will be bothered by the dust, too, so they'll chip in to pave Ms. Gray's road.
I got mine, now I want to keep everyone else out. Better yet, let's pave paradise and put up a parking lot.
