BLM Inventories Roads and Trails in Fifteenmile Area


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that it will inventory roads and trails on public lands in the Fifteenmile area. Inventory work will begin the week of August 15 and is expected to be completed in mid-September.

Pan Pacific, a small travel management services contracting company, will record road-related data using global positioning equipment. During the inventory, the public may see two to four individuals riding blue Yamaha motorcycles with mounted GPS units on constructed and two track roads.

The area to be inventoried consists of BLM-administered public lands north of State Hwy. 431, south of the Greybull River, east of State Hwy. 120, and west of U.S. Hwy. 16/20.

Route data inventoried will be used for future travel and transportation management as well as to enhance the BLM’s inventory of all roads, two-tracks and other routes available for motorized use. No decisions will be made based solely on this inventory and any future travel management plans will undergo public announcement, public involvement and public discussion.

For more information, please contact BLM Outdoor Recreation Specialist Paul Rau at 307-347-5100.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
