    Wasatch Mountain Wilderness Proposal

    Attention Utah Residents. There is a proposal to create an additional 30000 acres of Wilderness along the western side of the Wasatch Mountains immediately east of Salt Lake City.This would impact some of the most popular riding in the area, (there have been some concessions made to preserve some of the mountainbiking). This has been a very fast moving process and the proposal may be introduced as early as this month (april 2008).Please go to saveourcanyons.com to view the proposal, and send a letter to your congressman to express your views on the proposal. thanks Bob Martin

    Thanks for the heads-up mctweek.
    Oh brother! The peaks from Mt. Olympus to Lone peak already have wilderness designation, and they want more? I believe S.O.C. already fought and had limits put on the developement of BCC and LCC, and since we already have Watershed protection regulations in effect through this same area, one can only assume this new proposal is aimed directly at mountain biking.

    This is very unfortunate. I have a hard time as viewing this proposal as anything more than bickering among trail users, who do not want to share the trails, thinly veiled as legislation to protect the Wasatch.

    The trails in these areas are very well maintained and much of that maintenance comes from mountain bikers. We need to make sure this does legislation does not pass.

    You might assume, and you might have a hard time viewing, but you'd be wrong.
