    This panel discussion will explore the consequences of Secretarial Order 3376, allowing E-bikes, and mountain biking in wilderness areas. The focus will be on whether increasing recreational opportunities for some will limit or diminish the wilderness experience for others.. Items of discussion will include whether access to wilderness areas should be limited to human-powered vehicles to preserve the existing wilderness experience, or whether allowing mechanized vehicles such as E-Bikes in wilderness areas strikes an appropriate balance between sometimes competing access and preservation interests. Finally, the panel will consider whether Secretarial Order 3376 could ultimately lead to use of motorized vehicles in wilderness areas, and whether such uses are a bridge too far. The panel will also discuss the appropriate role of government, if any, in dictating or defining individual wilderness experiences.
