Summary: This Environmental Assessment (EA) describes potential impacts of a trail and joining features in the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area (CMPA). The Proposed Action would take place in the Wildland Juniper Management Area (WJMA) located approximately 72 miles south of Burns, Oregon, on Steens Mountain. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now proposing to build two trailheads and 1.2 miles of trails, extend existing pullouts, and install additional interpretive panels within the WJMA to provide visitors the opportunity to view juniper expansion and experimental treatments.
