BLM Challis Travel Management Maps Available

CHALLIS, ID (Oct 23, 2009) – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Challis Field Office travel maps are available at BLM offices (Challis and Salmon), Eastern Idaho Visitor Center (Idaho Falls), Idaho Fish & Game Office (Idaho Falls), Rexburg Motor Sports, Action Motor Sports and various locations in Challis. These maps are free to the public and depict seasonal closures areas and approved motorized trails.

The BLM would also like to remind the public that starting October 1 through December 31, the following areas are closed to motorized use in order to provide a non-motorized hunting experience and preserve wilderness values:

Jerry Peak West Wilderness Study Area
Jerry Peak Wilderness Study Area (except North Fork of Sage Creek Road)
Corral Horse Basin Wilderness Study Area
Burnt Creek Wilderness Study Area (except Burnt Creek Road)
Goldberg Wilderness Study Area

“This is the first year for implementation of this portion of our travel management plan, and we are hopeful that it will provide hunters with a large block of public lands where they can enjoy a non-motorized hunting opportunity,” said Jeff Christenson, BLM Challis Field Office Outdoor Recreation Planner. “Hunts spoiled by inappropriate OHV use have been the single largest source of complaints I get each hunting season.”

For more information, please contact the BLM Challis Field Office at 208-879-6200 or the Eastern Idaho Visitor Center at 208-523-1012.


The BLM manages more land - 256 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
