Pacific Crest Trail Proposal Seeks to Steal Your Lands

Stewards of the Sequoia are people who enjoy all types of recreation including:
Off Road Vehicles, Mountain Bikes, Horse Riding, Hiking, Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Windsurfing, Boating, Rock Climbing and more….. See Stewards “Who We Are” video.

We put our time and sweat into the trails we love as the largest on the ground volunteer organization in the Sequoia National Forest to keep trails open to everyone.

We recently discovered a Pacific Crest Trail Association proposal which seeks to create a one mile wide Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) corridor likely restricting all forms of recreation and land management in three National Forests including the Sequoia. They also seek to limit trails and roads crossing the PCT to no closer than 5 miles apart in order to provide “more of a Wilderness experience”.

The PCT Land Grab could-

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

Please watch the video now and Take Action

And tell them they need to stop trying to steal our few remaining multiple use lands. They need to remove their overly restrictive PCT proposal from the Forest Plan Revision.
