From Red rock 4 Wheelers

This is probably the most important travel management plan of the decade and will decide the fate of most of Moab's most famous Jeep trails.

It is crucial that you comment opposing alternatives B and C and supporting alternatives D or A, and ask the BLM to keep all of the routes mentioned below open instead of closing them. Please review the entire press release above for additional information.

As expected, the "natural resources" alternative B was modified to close even more trails as requested by Grand County, and would now close all of the Hey Joe Canyon, Hell Roaring Canyon, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Rusty Nail, Day Canyon Point, Dead Man Point, Bull Canyon, Ten Mile Canyon, and 3D / Mashed Potatoes Jeep trails, plus the Dead Cow and Tubes motorcycle trails, plus parts of Where Eagles Dare, Buttes and Towers, Wipe Out Hill, and 7 Mile Rim.

If this extreme alternative was chosen (unlikely but possible) it would utterly eviscerate the Easter Jeep Safari trail network and close at least portions of most of the famous named trails featured in guidebooks and motorized events.

The so-called "balanced" or "multiple-use" alternative C (the one the BLM almost certainly intends to adopt) appears unchanged since the preliminary alternatives release a year ago, and would close 2/3 of Ten Mile Canyon, half of Hell Roaring Canyon, all of Mineral Canyon, one of the overlooks on Deadman Point, part of the Buttes and Towers safari trail, the 7-Up trail, and many other lesser known routes.

Alternative D is the "pro-motorized" and has the least amount of closures, but still closes part of the Buttes and Towers safari trail. It could be acceptable to motorized users if they eliminated that closure. Alternative A, the no-action alternative, is of course the best but the BLM never picks that one and always picks one of the action alternatives. So D is the only real option for motorized users to support.​

To the best of my knowledge, the RR4W has sent out an emailer to all their registrants and there has been a lot of buzz about it on the internet. I can't say I'm super optimistic about how things will play out but with any luck, this will help some.

You must be new to the offroad world. Nothing you or anyone does will change it. I’m guessing you have no idea about the 80k acres blm took in Johnson valley that the off-roaders considered a win because they didn’t take the lakebed.

I have been Jeeping about 4 years so not Long, Before that I spent 8 years Logging in Alaska you think the BLM & Forest service is tough on Jeeps go to the woods and Meet with them, They do have to listen to comments they don't have a choice and we will Lose trails but how many is the question. Personally, I think environmentalist our the Most dangerous thing on the planet, everybody wants clean air & water - it is the Extreme environmentalist who say's they would Cleanse the planet of People to shut down one mine that is the Most dangerous and there out there believe me.

As much as I hate to admit it, and I really do, I personally have yet to see a single instance where it's made a difference, anywhere. That said, I'm all for trying and like I said, with any luck, it will help some.
Too much give and take - I feel the same way about gun's we should not be defending our rights to carry we should be pushing our right for Machine guns true Machine guns not the AR
 
Look up 30 by 30… there’s a quota that has to be met and they couldn’t give any shits about our wanting to wheel on their precious earth.

This is why I hate Democrats... they want to cancel all things that Make Men... Men. Beef, Off Roading, V8's, Lawnmowers, Guns, and Vaginas. They'd rather us be helpless, low testosterone unarmed bitches that eat vegetables, use EV's and date Chicks with Dicks.
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

A quote from the all time best selling book. Roman's 1:25.
The first chapter of Roman's speaks to almost everything the modern democrat seeks. Homosexuality, pornography, worshipping the creation, more than the creator.
Would serve everyone well to get into the Bible.
