Moab Trail Closures

Postby tobyw » Thu Nov 02, 2023 12:04 pm

In case people aren't paying attention, there is a pretty significant movement already underway to close a bunch of trails in the Moab area:

There is already an appeal underway by the State of Utah:

Yep, I've wheeled one of those, too...

Yeah... and apparently the Moab city council denied the 2024 permit application for the annual Bronco Roundup (think Easter Jeep Safari for the Bronco guys) :(

Just happened to notice in this month’s Tri-Power that there is a story about this… the legal battle about it. Be sure to check it out. If you didn’t get the email, be sure to let me know so I can fix/confirm you email with PNW.
