    The BLM manager has discretion to close areas at Carpenter Bypass for a variety of reasons, safety being the current concern. They are attempting to manage public safety by closing trails that are in proximity to logging operations while leaving trails they deem safe to use open. If trail users ignore the closures, as some already have, DOD expects BLM to get more restrictive and it is not in our interest for them to do so. Since all of us would like to continue riding at Whypass for the next three years, even while some trails are closed, please obey signage and stay out of those areas marked closed.

    The latest updates on the logging operations at Carpenter Bypass (see map below):

    •  Logging operations continue in Section 23 with a partial trail closure. This section should reopen soon.

    •  Operations have begun in Section 35. This area is now closed. Signs and warning flagging have been placed at trail junctions.

    Check back here periodically for updated information as operations wrap up in one area and move to another.


    Let us ride!

    I was saddened to see that almost all the trails are closed as of this week. Does anyone know how long this will last or what trails are open at this point?

    BLM has closed all the trails in section 27 and opened the trails in sections 23 and 35. Apparently their intention is for trail users to ride the pavement from the yellow gate to alpha. They had originally planned in section 27 to keep trails open on one side or the other of carpenter bypass road so the trail system would remain connected from north to south, but it looks like they have changed the plan.
