Alsea Falls Recreation Area Planning Effort
August 2012 Update
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Salem District is developing a recreation management plan for the 12,282-acre Alsea Falls recreation area. The proposed planning area of BLM-administered land includes the Alsea Falls Recreation Site, the South Fork Alsea River National Back Country Byway, and a non-motorized trail system. Recreation opportunities in the planning area include camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and biking.
The purpose of this planning effort is to guide the management of recreational use of these lands for the next 15 years. The final plan will outline a comprehensive strategy for recreation management including potential site development for Alsea Falls Recreation Site, the Back Country Byway and surrounding lands, visitor services, and trail use.
An EA will be released for public review in October 2012. A final management plan and decision will be signed for the plan in December 2012. For more information on the planning effort, please contact Rich Hatfield, Marys Peak Field Manager, at 503-315-5968 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
