We the undersigned would like to formally request that the spur road leading to the hang glider launch site above Burcham Flat be added to the Motor Vehicle Use map or otherwise remain accessible. Were it to be added to the MVU it would be designated FS32167B and is located at Lat: 38.39027, Long: -11937875. It's a road that has served the hang glider community for many years and is therefore more than just a random spur. The whole spur follows a contour less than a quarter mile across a bench so it contributes less to erosion than many of the random spurs that otherwise direct runoff into steep ruts or cut through meadows. As a community that supports the wise use of the public back country, we appreciate efforts to minimize harmful vehicle access and otherwise shepherd the conservation of the wild beauty of our public lands. We feel that this particular road provides a higher than average public benefit with a lower than average impact and are hereby petitioning to have it remain open to the public.
