Bureau of Land Management public affairs officer Suzanne Endsley stands in a marshy meadow along lower Yellowstone Trail and Blue Creek Bay discuss the future of a 751-acre conservation area east of Coeur d'Alene which will include new equestrian and hiking trails, connector trails to existing trails, extended parking lots, and mountain bike trails. The marshy area where Endsley is standing is an example of what they call a "social trail", or a trail forged by the public, and will be developed by the BLM into maintained trails in the new area which will be called Blue Creek Bay Recreation Area.
Officials at the Bureau of Land Management, which manages the Wallace Forest Conservation Area around Blue Creek Bay on Lake Coeur d'Alene, hopes its revised plan for the site announced on Thursday is a happy medium that both incorporates recreational uses that are in demand and preserves the property's natural beauty.
