    Unhappy Holy Sh!t is this true?

    I just got an e-mail from a mailing list that I am on. Please read up. This sucks
    The guy that posted this lives in Moab. I am in awe.........I love that place.



    >>>Hey guys, speaking of Moab and EJS, I thought I'd pass on some rotten news I
    heard today. The Helldorado trails have been closed. The trails were on
    State school trust lands, and a large parcel (which includes the Heldorado
    trails and possibly part of the Strike Ravine trail) was sold to a private
    individual who apparently wants to build a home on the land. Apparently the
    new owner has posted the area.

    There was another Thread mentioning it. What I understood was that it was BS... I really hope it's BS, those are my 2 favorite Trails.

    Here's the Thread- Thread w/ Helldorado Closure Info

    I for one, have a really hard time believing that someone purchased that land to build a house on...unless its dan mick, and he can have his own personal training course for the tourists but i suppose all of us going on turkey day will find out whats really true,no?

    but i hope thats not the case

    I haven't been able to find the map I wanted, but here is a link to one that shows some of the School Trust Lands around Moab, they are the blue color:

    I haven't been able to find the Helldorado area on any of the current or past lists of lands that are for sale, but from the map it looks like the area might be School Trust Lands.

    Here's another map that shows trust lands in the Helldorado Area:

    I just sent a email to Dan, he'd be the Man who would know whats up. Hopefully he'll respond & we'll see what the next step is, if there is one.

    The entrance to lower helldorado has been blocked and a sign put up. It left me scratching my head at the time. I sure hope it isn't closed for good.
