Wilderness, the Bulldozer, and the Bike
Mechanical equipment such as bulldozers and bikes are prohibited in Wilderness. But that hasn’t stopped the National Park Service from clearing wide swaths along the Main Road using heavy machinery. The Main Road was officially removed from Wilderness, but the adjacent lands are supposed to me maintained for their primitive character.
Bicycles are also not permitted in the wilderness. The National Park Service has not enforced this, and bicycles continue to be used throughout the island wilderness.
