BLM Cody Hosts Open House for Proposed
Beck Lake Mountain Bike Trail Right-of-Way


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office will host an open house to discuss the proposed Beck Lake mountain bike trail right-of-way (ROW) on Wednesday, Feb. 15 from 5-7 p.m. at the Park County Library in Cody.

The City of Cody has applied for a ROW grant that would authorize the development and maintenance of 4.6 miles of trails across public land to be used by mountain bikers and hikers. The authorized trails would connect to the City of Cody’s Beck Lake Park Recreation Area as well as to existing trails south of Cody. Of the 4.6 miles, 3.3 miles would be new construction.

The open house will provide an opportunity for comments on the proposal. BLM resource specialists, as well as representatives from the City of Cody and Park County Pedalers, will be available to explain the project and answer questions.

The Park County Library is located at 1500 Heart Mountain Street in Cody. For more information contact BLM Realty Specialist Duane Feick at 307-578-5900 or stop by the Cody Field Office at 1002 Blackburn Street.



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.
