More than a year ago, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced plans to update the travel-management plan for the Labyrinth Rims/Gemini Bridges Special Recreation Management Area near Moab, Utah. The travel management area covers more than 300,000 acres of BLM managed land in portions of Grand County, Utah, and includes highly valued OHV trails.
The SEMA Truck & Off-Road Alliance (TORA) hosted a trail run and off-roading event for SEMA members earlier this year in Moab. SEMA and the off-road community oppose the BLM’s Alternative B, which would close 39% of the existing trails near Moab.
The BLM has requested public comments on its draft travel management plan for the area, which includes four alternative approaches (A-D). SEMA and the off-road community are supporting Alternative A, which is the status quo, and oppose Alternative B, which would close 39% of the existing trails. Alternatives C and D would close less trails. Please click here to submit comments to the BLM on the travel-management plan.
