Wrong path

I completely agree with David Johnson's letter about the proposed Ute Pass Trail ("Not the right trail," Letters, Aug. 19). This has to be one of the most ill-conceived ideas ever. It seems that hikers and bicyclists are generally environmentalists who appreciate nature and want to protect and enjoy it. The proposed path would not only be unenjoyable but quite dangerous. This route would have people riding/hiking through heavy vehicular traffic, which could cause serious injury.
