CEDAR CITY — A public open house will be held to discuss a recreation plan for the Old Spanish Trail.
The Bureau of Land Management-Utah Cedar City Field Office will host the event Aug. 19 at the Southern Utah University Gerald R. Sherratt Library, Room 002, from 2-5 p.m.
Interns from SUU and Utah State University are working with the Old Spanish Trail Association, Iron County Tourism, State Institutional Trust Lands Administration and the BLM on a plan for a recreational trail that follows the historical Old Spanish Trail.
The BLM interns will lead the open house discussion, describing to attendees the design plan and highlights of the trail system.
"Helping build public land stewards by offering students internships and opportunities to assist with projects like the Old Spanish Trail recreation plan provides real-world experience and helps achieve land-use objectives," said Dave Jacobson, BLM recreation planner.
The trail design includes information kiosks, trailheads, and motorized and non-motorized routes. The trail also features a stop at a soon to be constructed Old Spanish Trail Museum in Enoch. The trail extends 80 miles from Circleville to Enterprise.
For additional project-specific information, contact Jacobson at 435-865-3010.
