    Thomas Kohn reviewed The Goat Trails [CLOSED]

    I have enjoyed biking in this mixture of double- and single-track trails for over 15 years.

    I am writing a proposal to the Trails Management Subcommittee of the Coachella Valley Association of Governments, which advocates for authorizing the use of the Goat Trails. One private owner, a corporation, is based in Chicago Illinois. I have sent a letter of inquiry to them, requesting their assistance in allowing access by hikers and bikers. I have also contacted the Palm Springs planning department to authorize access and trail management activities for the portion of the Goat Trails that are in the city's "Palm Hills subdivision." Another owner is the Bureau of Land Management (the southwestern 2/3 of the trail), who has deferred to the Trails Management Subcommittee and is unofficially supportive of open access to the trails for hiking and mountain biking. A very small portion of the trail system may cross tribal land, owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians—however, a land survey would need to be conducted to ascertain the exact location of the tribal land, which is adjacent to the privately-owned (corporate) land.

    I have also organized an informal club on Strava, the Goat Trails Maintenance Team to perform trash pickup and some minor earth moving to prevent rutting and ravining from runoff. Once the proposal is accepted, the club will be involved in making the existing trails sustainable.

    Please visit and join the club if you have interest in using the trails frequently. (https://www.strava.com/clubs/Goat-Trails-Maintenance)
