Pocatello, ID – Today BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) announced the pre-print release of the Lost Trails Guidebook Volume 2. The first volume of the Lost Trails Guidebook featured 30 trails in Utah that are at risk of closure as part of an ongoing planning process from the Bureau of Land Management. This latest volume features trails in the Moab region of Utah, the Black Canyon Corridor region of Arizona, the GMUG snowmobiling area of Colorado, and a selection of dispersed campsites that are also at risk of closure.
BRC recognizes that this guidebook was only possible because of a generous grant from the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative and because of the support of our dealer sponsor, Jorgensen’s Power Sports in Richfield, Utah.
“We are happy to be the dealer sponsor of the second Lost Trails Guidebook,” Dennis Jorgensen, owner of Jorgensen’s Powersports said. “We are excited that Volume 2 is highlighting trails in the Labyrinth Rims and Gemini Bridges area near Moab that are in danger of being closed. Jorgensen’s Powersports is committed to the fight to keep our public lands open and educating the public on their opportunities for adventure.”
We heard from many who ordered the first volume asking for maps of the trails featured. Based on that feedback, we’ve partnered with Trails OffRoad for this volume to be our official mapping partner.
We also partnered with the following companies and organizations that are committed to the fight to keep our public lands open:
- Utah ATV Club
- Snail Trail 4×4
- Ride Dog
- Cliffhanger Jeep Rental
- RideNow Powersports
- Best Off Road
- Sedona ATV Rental
- EZ Flate
- Nash Powersports
- Xtreme 4×4 Tours
- Warner Vans
- High Point Hummer & ATV
- Moab Tour Company
- CBI Offroad
- Owl Vans
We focused on trails that include a wide range of technical difficulty and terrain. The trails also lead to spectacular scenery, recreation experiences, and amazing dispersed camping sites.
“The support we’ve received for educating our members and supporters about these lost trails that we might lose, has been overwhelmingly positive.” BRC Executive Director, Ben Burr said. “We’re often told that the reason trails get closed is because of overuse and excessive impact. The truth is, we’re losing more trails because we’re not using them enough. We hope everyone uses this guidebook to go find new adventures and new trails that aren’t currently being used.”
A printed book will be sent as a gift to everyone who makes a recommended donation of $25 or more to BRC.
