PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The U.S. Forest Service has investigated four incidents in which vandals endangered the lives of motorcyclists and all-terrain vehicle riders by burying spikes along trails used by off-highway vehicles and others, the American Motorcyclist Association reports.
The spiked strips, which resemble heavy barbed wire, can cause flat tires on motorized vehicles, which could cause loss of control and result in a crash. The booby traps also threaten the safety of hikers and horseback riders and even the wildlife that travel along trail corridors.
The Blueribbon Coalition recently reported that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Eagle Lake Field Office (ELFO) is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) that will analyze the impacts of development and maintenance within the existing Rice Canyon 105 acre open area managed primarily for off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. The project area is within the Antelope/Shaffer/Bald Mountain Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) which was designated in the 2008 BLM ELFO Resource Management Plan (RMP).
The Rice Canyon OHV open area is located NE of Susanville, California, off of Rice Canyon Road within Township 30 North, Range 13 East. The purpose of the proposed action is to protect OHV users from unregulated target shooting, create loop trail opportunities and encourage users to stay in designated areas.

The NDAA, H.R. 3979, is the comprehensive legislation to authorize the budget authority of the Department of Defense and the national security programs of the Department of Energy. The $584.2 billion bill contains more than 1,600 pages of regulations, policies and programs that authorize and govern the U.S. military.
