CPE - Salt Creek (conservation block)

The beginning of the Salt Creek Trail lies outside of Canyonlands National Park. But President Obama's declaration of Bears Ears National Monument gave the upper Salt Creek Canyon and nearby Beef Basin added protections.

In December 2017, President Trump stripped this land of national monument status, cutting Bears Ears by 85 percent. The first two miles of the Salt Creek Trail lost the protections it gained one year earlier. Take a look at what got nixed ›
