Final Decision & Ruling from the BLM
BLMs Arizona Strip Field Office had made designations to close access to nearly 50% of OHV trails in the Littlefield/Beaver Dam region under the Proposed Transportation Network for Littlefield, St. George Basin, and Colorado City Travel Sub-Regions. We felt the BLMs decision was not substantiated or a fair decision for our OHV community, so we made the effort to officially appeal their decision, but unfortunately the BLM had officially declined our reasons to appeal their decision for recent trail designations.
Moving forward, the BLM will start posting signage and new maps for the area that will most likely outline the new trail designations and trail management decisions on BLM managed lands in the Littlefield/Beaver Dam area.
Additionally, we would like to thank everyone who signed and supported our petition to keep our trails open and to protect Three Corners Monument. We are honored and amazed to see our OHV community come together to support the cause and voice their concerns to protect our trails. We have also forwarded the AZ Strip BLM office a list of everyone who signed the petition and who wanted to opt in to being added to their email list of interested parties for future updates and news in their jurisdiction.
Thanks again to everyone involved and for all the support from those who signed the petition and provided feedback and recommendations!
