Shared Use- MTBs and Disc Golf
« on: October 07, 2014, 01:49:49 PM »
This is just a heads up on avoiding some issues at Cliff Drive and Stocksdale as we play the courses and use the parks.

I have been in contact with the shareholders in these parks and everyone agrees we just need to raise awareness and inform and educate. So, there will be some new signs in both parks/courses/trails and as you play/ride be courteous and respectful of each other.

There will certainly be some feathers ruffled but the last thing we want is an injury or bad press for our sport and stewardship in the parks.

I just didn't like the idea of losing DG holes over it. Even if the MTB dudes ride right down the fairway on 7 or 8 at Cliff, it ain't like there's going to be a steady stream of them all day long. Let them ride through and then play the hole, not complicated at all.

Agreed.

So the Disc Golfers cleared out the woods for Disc Golf fairways and the bikers get to ride down them now? That seems fair.  ::)

Far as I know, the only portion of the trail that actually uses our DG fairways is the part that goes along hole #7.

I was actually thinking about the 15 years we put in cleaning up the park. Are they going to partner with us on the continuing beautification and efforts to stamp out blight?

They are closing Cliff Drive until next Spring for repairs and cleanup. Are we partnering in this project?
Just to clarify. I'm not speaking about the park itself being closed.

What are they closing then?

the road that splits current #6 stairs out to #7.  It will become one way.  Minimal impact in all honesty to the disc golf area at this time.

And most likely minimal impact on the trash not getting dumped.
