Hi Members and Recreation Enthusiasts:
Attached is our flyer about the upcoming hearing before the Idaho County Commission on the issue concerning the Milner Trail trail at the trailhead across from Fish Creek.
A private owner has taken it up himself to install gates, and will lock them at some point, blocking this public trail. You will learn all about it when you attend the hearing. If you’re a recreation enthusiast (biking, hiking, ATV-ing, snowmobiling, cross country, motorcycling and dirt bikes) and enjoy riding on the Historic Milner Trail (or any trail for that matter) you will want to get behind this issue to keep this trail open.
A color version of the flyer in jpg format is attached at the bottom of this post – designed for social media.
There’s lots of history concerning this trail – cut in by Pioneer Mose Milner back in 1862 to open up the way to gold fields in the Florence area. Preservation of history and culture is important, in addition to keeping a trail open that has never been abandoned and is widely used year-round by recreation enthusiasts. In fact, back in 1872, records document that Idaho County Commission validated the Milner Trail as a public right-of-way county road.
We have hired an attorney, adept at road issues to present the case in front of the Idaho County Commission, laying out facts that support preserving Milner Trail as an open trail for all of us to continue enjoying, as it has been enjoyed for over 100 years, in addition to the privilege of keeping it open for your children, your grandchildren and generations beyond.
If you’re able to attend the hearing, it will take place:
WHERE: 2nd floor of Idaho County Courthouse in a Courtroom. (plenty of room for lots of people to attend).
WHEN: 11am on Tuesday, November 29th
