Pine Creek Canyon Update
During a recent phone conversation with our local BLM Representative John Allen discovered the following:
There have been some concerns that changes may be in the wind to change equestrian access to BLM areas, especially in Red Rock.
1st, there was a notice about The Harris Springs area that had been burned over in the Carpenter one fire and has not yet recouped, mainly due to lack of rain. As a result the closure will continue.
2nd, some riders reported that they were told that they could not ride the Pine Creek canyon trail in Red Rock. Investigation shows that this trail has been closed to equestrian use, due to the high amount of foot traffic, for at least 7-8 years. But there was no direction specific to that trail given. So, we need to honor that for now.
3rd, They announced decisions for public comment coming this month. These were based on a previous meeting (ZOOM) which I attended last year with the result in no changes to equestrian use in the Calico Basin areas. As well as no additional bike trails. What we will see is the construction of a paved jogging path paralleling Hwy 159 from Charleston Ave. to Hwy 160. I have invited Josh to attend a meeting with BCHA in January so our members can get 1st hand info and make suggestions .
