The lands encompassing the BLM district are rugged, wild and remote.
Plan ahead: carry a proper map, compass, or GPS; always tell someone where you are going and when you plan on returning; and carry enough supplies, water, food, and first aide to face possible challenges. Many trails and routes are not maintained. Riders should plan ahead for emergencies such as equipment failure or getting stuck in remote areas.
17 (b) Easements
Many trails are marked as 17(b) easements. This means that a portion of the trail is an easement across private land to access public land. There are different allowable uses on different 17 (b) easements, but generally, you must travel directly through the easement to get to public land, staying to the designated trail until reaching public land to avoid trespassing. Camping, parking or blocking the easement in any way is not permitted. For specific information on easements within the BLM Glennallen Field office management area, contact our field office at 907-822-3217.
