That 'dense pine forest' looks a whole lot like a spruce plantation! :)

Pinkbike Poll: Dogs on the Trail?
I dont really agree with your last point there, I now live in Scotland but before I moved here I lived on Cannock Chase - the riding scene has exploded there over the last 5-10 years, it used to be dog walkers the odd horse rider and the occasional mountain biker, now it is dominated by mountain bikers who not only use the trail centre but also all the natural deer tracks that I used to walk our dog on... I have a dog who I take riding with me, I lost a whole summer to training him but he is at a stage now where I dont have to think or worry about him coming on rides with me - he does his own thing on the climbs and on the descents he runs to heel or drops back a bit more if its muddy. My mum on the other hand has a 1 year old Collie who she is trying to train but she struggles with it. She still lives near Cannock Chase and being a collie its instinct is to round things up, and the dog will take off after bikers to do that. Some people slow down and let her get the dog back under control and others just keep on peddling and thats when issues arise. I think there needs to be a mutual understanding, dog owners should control their dogs but the answer isn't putting them on a lead - you cant excersice a dog properly when its on a lead - even if you go out for 4 hours - they need to run... on our little island that is the UK there isnt enough space for everyone to spread out and have bikers in one area and dog walkers in another - everyone just need to have a bit of patience and a bit of understanding and if someone is asking you to stop so they can regain control of their dog then stop - it doesnt hurt to be nice... on the flip side if a rider is wanting to take their dog on a ride then they take that responsibility of making sure that not only is it trained properly but also that the people they are riding with don't mind the pooch coming along for the outing too...
