    Sorry, can't sign that one. None of the trails mentioned are well designed for MTBs. If the petition was asking the NPS to create or redesign/reconstruct some of their trails to accommodate MTBs I might sign it. I've seen too many walking trails become unsustainable MTB trails.

    I like mtn biking but GSMNP is not the place for it. They should get rid of the horses too, IMO.

    I agree with the above posters. No mtbs in GSMNP. Sorry, but go to Pisgah.

    Is there a petition to ban motorized vehicles from GSMNP? I'm on board with that.

    I would support a significant toll based on vehicle weight to support the park. I would hate to limit all motorized vehicles but users should pay for the privilege to use those roads.
