Top 10 Stories: Trail Access in the Preserve

Palos Verdes Patch is counting down its 10 biggest local stories from 2012. No. 8: Mountain bikers gain more access to Palos Verdes Nature Preserve.

It's been a crazy year. Palos Verdes Patch writers were busy writing about vandalism at the local high school, a missing diver and panga landings, among other topics. Here is the No. 8 story of the year, chosen by popularity and editorial discretion.

Mountain Bikers Gain More Access to Trails (No. 8)

Mountain bikers who enjoy riding the trails in the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve scored a victory in early October when the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council unanimously approved the majority of a staff recommendation to open additional trails to cyclists.

The move was opposed by many equestrians and hikers, who argued that mountain bikers speeding down narrow trails pose a safety hazard. Nevertheless, others said equestrians, bikers and hikers should share the trails equally.
