BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK — The park is proposing changes for users of privately owned livestock on designated horse trails.
The proposed changes are intended to ensure visitors' safety and protect park resources. The public will be able to comment on the proposed changes until April 24.
Email comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to: Program Analyst, Bryce Canyon National Park, P.O. Box 640201, Bryce, UT 84764.
The changes include a requirement that all horseback riding must be coordinated with the park’s authorized trail-ride concessionaire prior to entering the park. The park’s concessionaire would be required to provide a guide to accompany all privately owned stock riding groups for the duration of their trip over any portion of the 8 miles of available park stock trails.
The changes are being proposed to avoid trail conflicts and ensure the safety of users on the park’s steep, narrow trails.
Private stock riders would be required to make arrangements for the guide service a minimum of 48 hours in advance of coming to the park. A fee would be charged for that service based on the number of riders, up to eight riders per guide.
The proposed fee schedule is one rider, $100; two riders, $165; three riders, $200; four riders, $235; five riders, $265; six riders, $295; seven riders, $320; and eight riders, $345.
Visitors can find livery service arrangements by visiting www.brycecanyoncountry.com and www.visitsouthernutah.com. Camping with your stock is available on nearby National Forest land. Contact the Dixie National Forest at 435-676-9300 for further information.
For questions or further information on rules about livestock, call the park at 435-834-5322 or visit www.nps.gov/brca.
