March Public Meeting
Will the Historical
Crazy Mountain Trail System Survive Another Generation?
will Trail #267 survive the next year?
Update: Is the FS
recent Scoping Process, intiated for 30 days, beginning
as a Categorical Exclusion (CE), instead of an EA or EIS, illegal,
since there is a Memorandum of Understanding and Conservation
Agreement between various federal and state agencies on Yellowstone
Cuts. YCT are a Species of Concern by the State of Montana and
a Sensitive Species by the USFS. How can the Forest Service
not do an EIS on a trail relocation that will cross 4 creeks
with YCT, when their own NEPA manual states,
conditions that should be considered in determining whether
extraordinary circumstances related to a proposed action warrant
further analysis and documentation in an EA or an EIS are:
(1) Federally listed threatened or endangered species or designated
critical habitat, species proposed for Federal listing or proposed
critical habitat, or Forest Service sensitive species;
(2) Flood plains, wetlands, or municipal watersheds;"?

It has been almost a whole generation of
public access obstruction on your 100+ year old historic Crazy
Mountains Trail System.
Just as no one expects a private landowner
to give up their historic water rights, the public landowners
should know our deeded and historic prescriptive access rights
without a fight!
Would you like your access
restored for your and future generations?
Do you want your Federal
public land managers responsive to our public, multiple use,
and public trust resource needs?
How can we effectively
advocate for our Crazy Mountain public lands & access?
Please join us for a free,
open, transparent Public Meeting involving the West Crazy Mountains,
including a general Crazy Mountain access overview.
13, 2018, 6-8 PM
