Special Recreation Permits for Non-motorized Competitive Events in the Río Grande del Norte National Monument
The BLM proposes to issue three Special Recreation Permits to applicants for non-motorized competitive events (trail running and mountain biking) in the Taos Valley Overlook and Wild Rivers areas of the National Monument. An environmental assessment evaluating this proposal (see below) was available for public review during this past summer and is currently being revised in response to public comments. The BLM anticipates finalizing the EA and making a decision on the proposal soon. For more information, contact Planning and Environmental Specialist Brad Higdon at 575-751-4725.
