BLM seeks input on Environmental Assessment for Juniper and Pinyon Loop trails


Carson City, Nev.--The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Sierra Front Field Office has made available an Environmental Assessment (EA) on the proposal from the Carson Valley Trails Association (CVTA) for the Juniper and Pinyon Loop Trails Project. The public is invited to submit comments through August 30, 2013, prior to issuing the final EA and decision.
 
The proposal would allow for the construction and maintenance of two, 6-mile non-motorized loop trails. If approved, construction would likely begin in the fall of 2014. The preferred location for the trailhead for the Pinyon Loop is located on Pine Nut Road (identified as Trailhead East).
 
The EA, maps, and other supporting documents are available at: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_information/nepa.html
