Oh, no kidding. "Someone" has already started framing the conversation by suggesting that hikers only care about keeping the Baden-Powell and the Bridle Path (BPsquared) trails open, and that all other trails are "biker" trails and thus don't matter to anyone of value.
That is fine. Let the people that wish to divide the community announce themselves. In my observations, gov't really doesn't like having to settle disputes between user groups. The ones that clearly communicate their intention to get along and cooperate with others will prevail.
Me being optimistic.
