Barbara Lee: Don’t pave all trails in the city’s marsh

I disagree with letter writer McKenzie  Larson, who said all trails through the La Crosse River Marsh should be paved (Sept. 29 Tribune).

I live near the marsh and walk the paths at least once a day. I realize these are shared trails, but when hiking on the paved part of the trails, I’ve found some bicyclists fly by without so much as a warning bell or a shout. Some pass by so closely they practically brush the arms of pedestrians.

These bicyclists tend to shy away from the gravel paths, making for a much more relaxing hiking experience.

I would like to thank all the courteous bicyclists who ring a warning bell or give a shout out as they approach from behind.

    The City needs to "improve" the trails so they can start to collect user fees.
