CALL FOR MOUNTAIN BIKERS TO GET INVOLVED

On May 2010 the St George Field Office of the BLM began a comprehensive planning process that will effect every mountain bike trail in Washington County that is on BLM land.

During the process organizations from ATVers to Hikers will be voicing their opinion about the fate of roads and trails in the Washington County Utah area. At this point Mountain bikers either have the opportunity to increase the number of trails in our system or loose trails either through closure or shared use. Trails that are of particular concern are the Bear Claw Poppy Trail and other Red Cliff s Desert Reserve zones were braided trails are occurring.

If you want our system to remain state of the art you MUST get involved. Besides making yourself heard through letters and comments to the plan. Mountain Bikers must get organized and show the BLM that we care about the future of trails in Southern Utah.
