Why are they planning toilets when there is no legal access ? Or has this changed recently ?

Assuming this is juniper dunes or is their another "juniper" area

Press release says Juniper Dunes in the Juniper Forest Management area. Must be for all the non-motorized users. Have not seen anything new on the access issue. If you pull up the scoping document, you will find a map of where they want to locate them

They are also closing the dunes in Junt to put in a paved road and parking lot! So I'm assuming the access issue is resolved.

The June closure is at Beverly, and, yes, access is still an issue at Juniper. I have today sent comment on this to these nice folks:) I plan on either getting their attention, and something done, or getting banned from their website:thumbup:Someone recently crashed one of their kiosks, and I've voluteered the Putters ample resources to help with that. But, they sure do work slow...

Oh I got the two mixed up...

Thanks Dave I am sure your on top of it :thumbup: It does however seem to be the kind of thing the Govt. would do. Put in a outhouse that they cant drive a truck to to pump out. Maybe the hikers can pack it out:icon_idea:

I think that would be a good job for the "Anti Access People"
