    BLM Announces Road Closures and Trail Designations at Fort Stanton (NM)

    The Roswell Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced that its Route Designation Plan (transportation plan) includes road closures, designating off-highway vehicle (OHV) routes, and developing multiuse trails to protect resources within the Fort Stanton Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC).

    Road Closures and Trail Designations Announced at Fort Stanton (NM)

    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has designated approximately 24,000 acres as limited to designated roads and trails for OHV use, to protect soils, cultural resources, and vegetation, including threatened or endangered species. Twenty miles of roads will be closed, and twenty miles will be designated as open to OHVs. Sixty miles of multiuse hike/bike/equestrian trails will also be developed to reduce competition for trail use among different recreational interests.
