STOP the Pacific Crest Trail Land Grab


Pacific Crest Trail Proposal Seeks to Steal Your Lands
There is a Pacific Crest Trail Association proposal which seeks to create an up to one mile wide Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) corridor in order to provide "more of a Wilderness experience". Yet the PCT is not supposed to be a Wilderness Trail. The PCT is supposed to be a multiple use experience per their own PCT Management Plan. Currently the PCT runs right through mulitple use designated motoriized recreation areas. The one mile wide PCT Corridor would cut a non motorized restrictive swath right through these areas. The PCT Corridor will restrict all forms of recreation and land management in three National Forests including the Sequoia National Forest.
The PCT Land Grab would:
  • Close 30 miles of existing motorized trails which are under cons ideration for desigantion in Sequoia National Forest alone
  • Decimate a world class motorized trail system in Sequoia
  • Remove 21 square miles of lands form multiple use in Sequoia
  • Lead to the closure of 20-30% of the existing multiple use trails in the PCT area of Sequoia alone
  • Prevent fire breaks which have been needed in the past to stop the burning of private homes
  • Prevent fuel reduction needed to prevent future catastrophic wildifres
  • Restrict use on private property, even dictating what color cabins must be painted and prohibiting fuel reduction on private property within the one mile corridor or on property that can be seen from the PCT. This has happened to ranchers in other viewshed areas.
