A fight is brewing in Jackson Hole over mountain bike trails in the Palisades Wilderness Study Area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Conservationists contend that some popular mountain bike routes are illegal because three decades ago Congress nominated the area as wilderness, a class of land where cycling is illegal. The land is not officially wilderness yet- Congress has not designated it as such- so the battle continues. [Jackson Hole News & Guide]
