Help Save Moab Trails

The Grand County Council has identified over 100 miles of road closures in it's public lands initiative to be submitted to congressman Rob Bishop. These closures include 10 Mile Wash Road and seasonal closures on Hey Joe Canyon, Hell Roaring Canyon, and Dead Cow Loop. What's worse is that they have not put in any protections against future road and trail closures. Please click on the link on the ATV Utah home page for the Blue Ribbon Coalition for information on who to contact to make your voice heard. The deadline for this is March 31, 2015. Exclaim

I did my part and contacted local & federal government officials opposing this action.

What is Grand County thinking? Closing Hey Joe, 10 mile wash and other trails? How exactly does this help Grand County?

The Council caved to the demands of the river runners who said that their experience was being ruined by the noise of Jeeps and OHVs .  :'(

These comments really do work and are needed. We all no it sucks to take the time to do it, but it can also give you a chance to voice your option on how you feel about these selfish tree huggers trying to take our public lands away.

Can somebody provide a final synopsis on what Grand County recommended? Their online data doesn't say much to me and I can't quite discern their MAP.

I heard on the local Moab radio station all week that they may close Hey Joe for part of the year though they never said it was a done deal.  We went and rode the trail on Monday and there were 6 jeeps, two pickup trucks, 4 sxs, and three atv's using the trail.  During the entire ride, we saw exactly two river rafters.  Hmmmm......lets see, this is a real tough choice.......tick off a few boaters or a whole bunch of riders. Roll Eyes   Come on Grand County, think about it!

Seems to me that the OHV folks bring in more money to the area.
