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

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 websiteSomeone recently crashed one of their kiosks, and I've voluteered the Putters ample resources to help with that. But, they sure do work slow...

Thanks Dave I am sure your on top of it 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

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