White Mountains and Steese Transportation and Travel Management Plans

BLM Eastern Interior Field Office is seeking public input on trails and access in the White Mountains and Steese areas. Currently we are collecting preliminary information and verifying our road and trail inventory. After the inventory is complete, the Field Office will develop transportation and travel plans for these areas. An environmental assessment will be prepared in conjunction with the plans. The plans will address both motorized and non-motorized access, allowable types of motorized and non-motorized use, road and trail networks, travel on Birch Creek and Beaver Creek and conflicts between user groups.
