ELY – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District, Caliente Field Office is asking the public to review and provide comment on the Lincoln County Partners Non-motorized Multipurpose Trails 2015 Preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA), a proposed multi-purpose, non-motorized trail system to be located near Caliente, Nev.  The 30-day public comment period concludes Tuesday, March 1, 2016.

The proposed trails system would enhance access to public lands by constructing new multipurpose hiking and mountain biking trails.  The trails would improve non-motorized recreational opportunities in Lincoln County.  Development of the new trails and trailheads would not reduce access to or conflict with current recreational opportunities in the area.  Additional information can be obtained in the preliminary EA, available online at http://1.usa.gov/1nesxl2.

Interested individuals should address all written comments to the BLM Caliente Field Office, PO Box 237, Caliente, NV 89008, Attn: 2015 Trails Project or fax them to the office at (775) 726-8111.  Comments may also be submitted electronically at blm_nv_eydo_lctrails@blm.gov.  Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time.  While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
