Biking in Moab

October 16, 1994

In September, we visited Moab, Utah, the mountain biker's mecca ("The Capital of Rock and Roll," April 24). It was fabulous, with one exception. It seems the bikers are so excited by the expansive areas of beauty, that they forget to honor the land they're visiting by staying on marked trails. Despite its rugged and powerful topography, this living crust is very sensitive and a tire or footprint may take a hundred years to repair. Arches National Park has already suffered significantly because it has been unprotected for years. Hopefully this won't happen to Canyonlands National Park if we all remember to stay on the marked trails.
