Failure to pass two different county tax measures to keep funding going for recreation management is what precipitated this. From an outside perspective, I'm hopeful that HRATS can secure some kind of agreement with the county to take over management of the trails. There's lots of successful examples of mountain bikers doing this well.
The cynic in me wonders if this is similar to the ploy the Washington DNR used several years ago to get a bridge replaced on the Tarbell trail. They essentially said that they would close the trail (20+ miles) because of one failed bridge (on a creek that is typically able to be forded from late June through fall). If the various user groups could donate enough money and labor to replace the bridge then they would keep the trail open. Guess what happened?
