At the request of the White Pine County Commission, the Bureau of Land Management Ely District, Bristlecone Field Office is extending the public input period by 39 days on a proposal to designate a signed trail system in White Pine County consisting of existing roads and trails that would be open to all uses. The public scoping period concludes Friday, Feb. 1.

The BLM is preparing an environmental assessment analyzing routes for a potential trail system at the commission’s request. 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.
