Document Publish Date: 9/19/2013
Summary: The Prineville District, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has developed a draft wilderness management plan and environmental assessment (EA) for the Oregon Badlands Wilderness, located about 14 miles east of Bend, Oregon and north of Highway 20. BLM policy requires that a wilderness plan be completed for each designated wilderness. The plan provides guidance for preserving and enhancing wilderness values while offering opportunities for solitude and primitive recreation, as well as managing other land uses and activities. The EA analyzes four alternatives that range from a No Action (continue present management) Alternative to a "Human Activity Least Present" Alternative. The alternatives address issues such as the location and design of trailheads, the number and placement of trails, the role of Special Recreation Permits, and limitations or requirements for types of uses such as rock climbing, hiking with dogs, or hiking with stock.
