Moab Trails Closing

Please use the link below to provide a polite, unemotional comment that expresses your concerns. Threats, curse words, and emotional comments will not promote our cause.

Please send in your comment NOW! Time is of the essence. Comments must be submitted by this coming Monday, April 26th.

Talking points for your comment submission:
Our positive financial impact on the local economy
Our volunteer work to build new trail systems
Our volunteer work to maintain and improve jeep roads, ATV, and MC trails
Our financial contribution to the area trails via purchasing off-road stickers - millions of dollars annually - hikers and bicycle riders contribute nothing
Our right as taxpayers to use public land
How you, your family and friends use and enjoy the area



Motorized off-road enthusiast,

Our trails in Moab are being threatened! Southwest Utah Wilderness Alliance is trying to shut down 330,000 acres of motorized recreation access in the Labyrinth Rims/Gemini Bridge Special Recreation Area outside of Moab. This includes every trail west of Highway 191 and north of town to the interstate. Affected trails include Gemini Bridges, Rusty Nail, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Golden Crack, Poison Spider, Monitor & Merimac, Seven Mile Rim, Bull Canyon, White Wash Dunes, 10 Mile Canyon, Bartlett, Tusher, Determination Towers, Mashed Potatoes, Secret Spire, Dubinky, 3D, Dead Cow, The Tubes, and all the atv/single-track surrounding the dunes.

Make your voice heard! Visit https://eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-ui/project/2001224/510. Click the green box on the left that says "Participate Now" and then click on the green box on the right that says "Participate Now". Follow the submission process and urge the BLM to keep this wonderful area open. Submissions are open until 4/26/21. Please feel free to share this link with anyone who enjoys riding in the beauty that is Moab!

[The above message originated from Jeff Slavens Racing. Apparently SUWA et al. won parts of a suit requiring BLM to formally document the designation of designated routes. Our input to the BLM could be helpful toward a favorable outcome. There is also a map. https://eplanning.blm.gov/EPLCommentMap/?itemId=2be8bfadeb6a40549e59ad0ad0abb169 .
