(BEDFORD) - Trail permits to ride horses or mountain bikes on Hoosier National Forest trails in 2015 are now available. Permits can be purchased at Forest offices and some local businesses in the Forest area.

Annual trail permits make great Christmas gifts for trail enthusiasts. The cost of annual permits remains at $35. A daily permit is $5. There are approximately 184 miles of trails designated for bike use, and 211 miles of trail for horse use on the Forest. Most of the income collected from trail permits, remains on the Hoosier and is used to maintain trails, enhance trailheads, and provide visitor services.

This is the first year permits can be purchased from Forest offices with most national credit cards. People can call and purchase permits with a credit card and have them sent by mail.

Permits may be purchased at either of the Forest offices in Bedford or Tell City or by mail with a check. To order a trail permit by phone, call the Forest office at 1-866-302-4173. The Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/hoosier provides a list of businesses that sell trail permits.
