By Charles Pekow — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wants to take better care of the Klondike Bluffs Mountain Bike Focus Area and adjacent land in Grand County, UT. It is taking public comment on proposed rules to ban camping outside designated campgrounds, prohibit cutting and taking wood, and require people to use restrooms or port-o-potties. Yes, people have been leaving waste on the ground, which is degrading it.
The BLM noticed an increased use of the area, so it wants more controls. Comments are due Oct. 8. https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-08-18/html/2021-17704.htm
