The Bureau of Land Management Ely District, Bristlecone Field Office is asking the public to provide input on a proposal to designate in White Pine County a signed trail system consisting of existing roads and trails that would be open to all uses.

The 30-day public scoping period concludes Monday, Dec. 24, 2018.

The BLM will host an open house-style public input meeting from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 6, at the White Pine County Library, 950 Campton Street, in Ely.

The White Pine County Commission has requested that BLM prepare an environmental assessment analyzing routes for a potential trail system.

The BLM will consider one new proposed route and one route previously selected as the Silver State Off-Highway Vehicle Trail.

The BLM may consider additional alternatives based on cooperating agency and public input.
