  • ACTION ALERT COMMENT NEEDED | Proposed Closure Of Castle Hot Springs Rd
    Today, the Castle Hot Springs Resort has been restored and is back open after nearly 80 years of being closed. The owners don’t like that there is a county road traveling through the property. Therefore, Castle Hotsprings Resort has made a formal proposal to Yavapai County to erect gates on Castle Hot Springs Road on either end of the property and limit access to Castle Hot Springs Resort. The landowners are proposing an alternate route around the resort. If approved, this plan will forfeit a long-standing RS 2477 Right-Of-Way that is protected under state and federal law.
  • Breaking! Final Decision Withdrawn | Black Canyon Travel Management Plan | 57% of roads CLOSED
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has returned with a final decision on the Black Canyon Corridor Travel Management Plan. This Travel Management Plan has been in the works since early 2017 and has been on pause for the past four years. Despite the Trump administration’s attempt to deregulate a key component of Travel Management Planning, the Bureau of Land Management is moving full steam ahead.
  • Sedona City Council in favor of restricting access
    The Sedona City Council is asking the Coconino National Forest to implement a limited use permit system for motorized trails in the greater Sedona area similar to the Soldiers Pass Trail. The council meeting included discussions on whether or not the city can require quieter mufflers, impose nighttime restrictions on OHV use, force moratoriums on OHV businesses, limit OHV businesses by zoning, or licensing. Officials also discussed conducting an Environmental Impact statement to lay the basis for regulatory action through the Coconino National Forest.
