1290 MILE PROPOSED TRAIL CLOSURE | RIM COUNTRY | Four Forest Restoration Initiative

Forest restoration project calls for 1290 miles of motorized trails around the Mogollon Rim to close

In addition to recent Travel Management Plans, The Forest Service has introduced a Forest Restoration Project in four Arizona National Forests. The project aims at restoring riparian areas and CLOSING ACCESS in the Coconino, Tonto, Apache-Sitgreaves, and Kaibab National Forests. The plan is to be implemented across 953,100 acres of public land over a period of 20 years.

About Us

Engaging Our Community

AZBCE is dedicated to keeping our community informed. We have successfully engaged our community in policy-making decisions that threaten motorized access in Arizona. We take pride in helping shape land-use proposals on Bureau of Land Management and the USDA Forest Service lands.

Going Against The Grain

When nobody else is talking about it, AZBCE is. We believe it's important our community engage in policy decisions that threaten motorized access to our public lands. We publish material through various online and print publications to create awareness about the radical environmental policy facing outdoor recreation.
