...except: WHY DO THEY INSIST, IN L.A. and L. Paso, in calling them BIKE paths!!!?? Call me paranoid. But I've lived in every Southwestern state, two midwestern states, and a deep south state, and ONLY in TWO places--L.A. and L. Paso, do they just kind of give up, and half-heartedly call these BIKE paths. Don't you understand the arrogance and elitism this generates in the Mommy's little big shots on roller skates, and Daddy's precious little elite princesses, with their bikes? In LA county, they actually CHASE MOTHERS WITH RUNNING STROLLERS OFF THE PATHS! If you aren't (1) a USC Grad,(2) a Beemer pot smoking, cokehead, and (3) a rider of a f***g "mountain bike," you are considered somewhere between peon and illegal alien.
Go to Scottsdale. Go to Mesa. Go to Phoenix. Go to Reno. Go to Vegas. Go to MommyWhom Austin. Go to Rockford Illinois. Go to Lakewood, CO. Go to Farmington, NM. Go to SL City, UT. Go to St. Louis, MO. Etc., etc.:
The best cities include all outdoor exercising citizens--they have MULTIUSE trails.
Come on, El Paso: you can do better than dismissing 75% of your population away from truly narrow-minded "bike trails." Is it so God d..d hard to name them "multiuse trails," thereby including all the tax paying, war fighting public???? Eh? Que pues, topos?

You may want to work on your reading comprehension, the story is about Sunland Park, New Mexico..not El Paso, Texas but FYI, we currently call them "Hike & Bike Trails" in El Paso.
You wrote all that because you are quibbling with the terminology as if it somehow offends or alienates potential users?
Classic example of over the top political correctness..trying to be all things to all people for no common sense reason at all.
Ironic that you make such a big deal about the name of the trails and yet you can't manage to spell El Paso correctly...
