Summary: The property owners have proposed that the BLM allow them six months of access to their property above the BLM administered lands in the canyon of the SFWW River via full-size vehicles. Over time, the landowners have made a variety of proposals regarding their access needs, ranging from just Class I OHV (quad) access year around, to OHV plus the currently allowed six weeks of full-size vehicle access, to the most recent proposal of six months of access via full-size vehicles. Each was in addition to the use of the trail all year via motorcycle/horses/walking.
