Newcastle, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management is offering a $300 reward for information leading to the identification and conviction of the individuals responsible for vandalizing the kiosk at the Old Quarry Trails located 5 miles east of Newcastle, Wyoming. On July 9, the kiosk at the popular recreation area was found with multiple bullet holes.

The kiosk was installed in May 2022. Its installation, as well as the development of the Old Quarry Trail system, is a collaborative effort between the BLM, the Bent Sprockets Bike Club, private donors, and other volunteers to provide safe and accessible recreation opportunities for the community. This summer the BLM hosted crews from the Montana Conservation Corps to further develop the trails. Once completed, the trail system will feature roughly 5 miles of trails with the potential for more routes in the future.

Anyone with information may contact the Newcastle Field Office at 307-746-6600.
