Hurricane, Utah – Trail Hero, presented by CargoGlide, is an off-road rock sports event benefiting the Utah Public Lands Alliance (UPLA) for one reason, and one reason alone: To keep our public lands accessible to the public. Sand Mountain OHV Area is in danger of closing if the BLM moves forward with a land swap. The new owner has plans to develop Sand Mountain Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA). His current property has the Mojave desert tortoise inhabiting it, which is an endangered species, and the BLM want to protect the tortoise. Sand Mountain SRMA is where Trail Hero will take place October 5 – 8, 2016.

Props to this guy for hanging it all on the line and for saving what could have been a big crash. We’re guessing he’s going to think twice next time… assuming he gets his truck all put back together.
The U.S. Navy has applied to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to continue to use the site of the Fallon Range Training Complex and to expand it to include more than 600,000 acres of additional public land. As a result of the Navy’s withdrawal application, the BLM has segregated the proposed expansion area from appropriation under the public land laws. The two-year segregation is obligatory while the Navy prepares an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on its expansion and extension proposals for the Fallon site about 65 miles east of Reno.
