Name a trail

Here’s your chance to name a BLM trail. You could immortalize yourself (isn’t that kind of egocentric?) or name it after a local landmark (more environmentally friendly). BLM will build the 1.3-mile trail from the Mustang Trail in Castle Valley Ranch in New Castle to an overlook north of town.

There’ll be a project team meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 22, at New Castle Town Hall, and you can submit your name suggestion then. A volunteer work day to build the trail will be Sept. 20. For information and to submit a name suggestion, send an e-mail to our friend Suzie at, or call 984-0502.
