BCHA’s Chairman Jim McGarvey signs a 5-year general agreement with the National Park Service last month in Washington DC. The agreement encourages national parks throughout the nation to partner with local BCH chapters for service and trail maintenance projects. The agreement was signed by the Director of the National Park Service, Jon Jarvis.

A big thank you goes out to Joshua Nadas, NPS Program Analyst Recreation and Environmental Policy for coordinating this signing.

We recommend you share a copy of the MOU with your local National Park recreation management.

    With regards to the Natchez Trace – currently there are about 56 miles of the 427 miles available for someone to ride their horse on – would this agreement serve to facilitate opening more miles on the Natchez Trace to horseback riding – just trying to figure out if we started a local BCHA club would there be the possibility of working towards opening the Natchez Trace from Natchez MS to Nashville TN for horseback riding
    Currently they allow bike riders to ride the entire 427 miles but not horses
    Please let me know what BCHA ‘s thoughts are on this matter.
