At least 60 people have signed up to attend a summit on non-motorized trails in Idaho — a meeting that will seek solutions to a funding gap that has left some trails impassable.
The discussion will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Andrus Center for Public Policy (301 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise). Participants are asked to RSVP by calling 208-514-2251.
The primary purpose is to gather hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and other non-motorized users to confront the need for a funding source that will help Idaho Parks and Recreation address a backlog of maintenance.

Idaho Fish and Game commissioners postponed a decision on releasing more big-game tags for auction until their March 9-11 meeting to allow more time for public input. Seventy-five percent of the written responses received about the idea were opposed. The commission also opposes a Senate bill that would force the agency to offer the maximum number of auction tags each year.
