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

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.
