Mount Rainier National Park is initiating their new Stewardship plan, with comments due by FEB 22, 2016. Please review the documents at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/morawild

There are 5 alternatives to consider in the documents, and comments should include detail about how you currently use the park, and how you would like to be able to use the park in the future. 
In your comments it will be appropriate to first consider trails that are not high density use by other visitors to the park, and that would provide loops that would take riders into the Park from the surrounding Forest Service lands. Please identify trails that would meet this criteria in your comments, with other considerations, like parking, access to trailheads, BCHW's leave no trace ethic, along with our skilled trail maintenance volunteer service.
If you have information about other National Parks that allow equine access that could also be included for reference. 
Some trails that may be appropriate for equine access are
*West Side Road to Isput Creek and Carbon River entrance
*Round Pass to Boundry @ Glacier View Wilderness
*Paul Peak Trail
*Box Canyon to Ohanapecosh Visitor Center
*East Side Trail-Ohanapecosh -Cayuse Pass
*Owyhigh Lake Trail
*Huckleberry Creek Trail-boundry of park to Sunrise visitors Center
