South of Price rd? I wouldn't hold your breath on it, but it is on my radar. No I don't see any equestrian trails ever crossing Price Rd just for the safety factor of horses with riders and motor vehicles driving 50-60 miles an hour. I know your saying well is it safe for hiker and bikers to cross the road? I'm just looking at the fact that the horses can be unpredictable.
I know there are some spots where bikers get onto the horse trail and horses get onto the bike trail. I'm just not sure exactly which spots cause the most trouble if they do in fact cause any trouble at all. I was thinking of maybe saying hey we will give up this portion/many miles of trail to the equestrians for the opportunity to build more bike/hike trail in another area such as you mentioned.
Food for thought, but like I said don't hold your breath. For now I'm looking at trying to fix a few more areas on the current trails and seeing how they look in the spring time. I hope they are improved from almost a year ago.
