BLM Seeks Input on Brokenback/Upper Nowood Access
An Environmental Assessment which affects motorized travel in the South Brokenback and Upper Nowood areas has been completed, and is now available for public review.
A public meeting in March solicited input and many of the ideas received at the meeting were incorporated in the travel management plan. The plan provides reasonable motorized access for scenic riding and travel across a varied topography. The plan also prohibits vehicle trailblazing, and traveling on cattle or wildlife trails. Unlawful travel on these trails causes erosion, jeopardizes archaeological resources, and interferes with “fair chase” and other aspects of lawful hunting.
Interested public land users are encouraged to review and comment on this document and maps at: www.wy.blm.gov/nepa/wfodocs/sbunmtm/index.htm.
Comments will be accepted through August 31, 2006.
