Elko, Nevada…The Mountain City, and Jarbidge & Ruby Mountains District Rangers announced today that they are planning six consecutive Saturday field trips, and are open to scheduling some additional field trips during the week if requested. This series of field trips will concentrate on looking at roads and trails and discussing resource issues and public recreational travel needs as part of the ongoing Travel Management scoping process initiated back in January.
“I am hoping that Elko County residents will consider taking time out of their hectic summer schedules to visit some of their favorite off-highway vehicle areas with us,” said Tom Montoya, Mountain City District Ranger. Montoya said that field trip conversations provide a great opportunity to learn more about the current Travel Management process, and all sides of the issues and concerns involved with designation of a travel management system.
