The Off Highway Vehicle enthusiasts owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Bureau of Land Management and Arizona State Parks and Trails.
Last fall a major rain storm almost destroyed the Tank Pass trail, a popular OHV trails that goes through the Harcuvar Mountains between the Butler Valley and Salome. The local OHV club members worked many hours through the winter to repair the washout but it was barely passible and remained a safety issue.
In February, the BLM applied for an emergency maintenance grant from State Parks to obtain the necessary funding to reconstruct the trail, making it safe, and correcting the drainage to help prevent future damage. Once the BLM completed the required environmental analysis in late March, they selected one of the State Parks contractors to accomplish the work. The maintenance project was started on March 31 and completed on April 3. The BLM and State Parks are to be commended for working in a partnership that really works quickly and efficiently.
