Tread Lightly! Partners, and Volunteers Improve Seven-Mile Rim Trail during Moab Easter Jeep Safari

More than 50 volunteers turned out on Tuesday during the Easter Jeep Safari to help improve Moab's popular Seven-Mile Rim Trail and Wipe Out Hill. Volunteers constructed nearly a half mile of fencing to help more clearly delineate the trail and reduce impact on the surrounding areas.

More than 50 volunteers turned out on Tuesday during the Easter Jeep Safari to help improve Moab’s popular Seven-Mile Rim Trail and Wipe Out Hill.

Volunteers constructed nearly a half mile of fencing to help more clearly delineate the trail and reduce impact on the surrounding areas. They also erected a buck and rail fence at Wipe Out Hill to provide some aesthetically pleasing environmental protection without obstructing the scenic view.

“It’s a great feeling knowing our work here today could help keep this area healthy and open for generations,” said Andrew Hoit, Falken Tire’s vice president of sales. “We’re proud to be part of any project that protects future opportunities for great wheeling.”

The national nonprofit Tread Lightly! brought together some of the outdoor industry’s leading companies to fund the project including Falken Tire, Discount Tire Direct, Quadratec, Four Wheeler Network, Goal Zero, and Teraflex. The Red Rock Four Wheelers and Bureau of Land Management are also supporting partners.

“We’re grateful for the generous donation of time and funding we’ve received for this trail today,” said Bureau of Land Management Field Office Manager Beth Ransel. “It’s public-private partnerships like these that can really help alleviate our public land’s back-logged maintenance. We especially appreciate the help this project gives us in communicating the BLM’s management policy regarding motorized vehicle travel.”

The project is part of Tread Lightly!’s Restoration for Recreation program. Restoration for Recreation is designed to protect and maintain recreation opportunities by repairing road, trails and bridges, improving maps and signage access points, and revitalizing dilapidated recreational facilities.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of the Spring. For more information about donating to or volunteering for Tread Lightly!’s Restoration for Recreation program, go to www.treadlightly.org.
