National Park Service Petroglyph National Monument Visitor Use Management Plan

The National Park Service (NPS) is in the early steps in the development of a Visitor Use Management Plan for Petroglyph National Monument.

The NPS is reaching out to the community on this matter.  Some public meetings were held in September and the public comment period is open until December 16, 2016.

After reviewing the reasons why a plan is being considered and the proposed options, BikeABQ and the Albuquerque Mountain Bike Association (AMBA) discussed the possibilities.

We are in agreement and have sent letters commenting on the plan to the National Park Service.  BikeABQ’s letter can be viewed here.

This plan presents opportunities to have established trails with trail heads linked to the community to enjoy the area as well as preserve the Petroglyph National Monument.

An overview of the NPS plan is here, and more details are here.

We encourage you to review our letter and the information from the NPS and to submit your individual comments directly to the NPS  before December 16.  If you agree with BikeABQ’s letter, you can simply state that in your comments.

The more input the NPS receives on this issue, the better.

Your consideration and participation in this matter are appreciated!
