The BLM in North Fruita, Colorado have issued the following update for the North Fruita Desert Trails Master Plan:
This is a victory that we have been working hard towards along with other stakeholders. The Fruita area has seen a lot of proposed changes including restricting free dispersed camping as well as restricting motorized and ebike use in the North Fruita Desert area. Ebikes are gaining a lot of attention on public lands as they have grown in popularity. BRC advocated for ebikes to be permitted on trails as they do not cause anymore impact than a human powered mountain bike. Ebikes also provide valuable recreation access for those with disabilities. We want to thank everyone who has engaged on these issues. We are happy with the outcome and will continue to gain more victories like this across public lands.
