For those that like to go hiking but get frustrated by all the traffic and congestion on the trails, a trail share system is being implemented in Bozeman starting July 16th.
The trail timeshare system was created to allow people who ride horses or motorcycles on the trails specific days to get to use them.
"I think it's a good thing. The big problem is the motorcycles and the horse people, they kind of go against each other and the one side thinks the other side is the nuisance. And really both sides, to me as a hiker, they're both about the same, they don't ruin my trip, but they don't coexist very well, and they both want access to those same trails," said hiker Grant Brinkman.
On one of the most popular hikes in Bozeman, Hyalite, only hikers are allowed on the trails on Fridays and Saturdays, with motorists and horse riders allowed Sundays through Thursdays.
"For a hiker it's not going to enhance things for me, but it is fairer to the rest of the population out there that they get an equal opportunity to do their recreational activities on these trails also," Brinkman said.
