In 1994, Red Rock Canyon State Park was significantly expanded to include the Last Chance Canyon area, east of Highway 14. This area is a popular destination amongst OHV users including green sticker vehicles. However, the Department of State Parks has not completed a management plan for this area. Since then, extreme weather events and favorable use have caused some popular trails to suffer damage and become subject to emergency closure. Without a management plan in place, routes and trails can not be repaired and are instead closed by emergency order.

At these public meetings, State Parks will brief the public on options on developing a management plan. OHV users who enjoy riding in Red Rock Canyon State Park are especially encouraged to attend. Some proposals may include:

• The future of green sticker use in Red Rock Canyon State Park
• The future of Nightmare Gulch (currently closed)
• The future of Last Chance Canyon (received corridor fencing and gates)

Also discussed will be allowable recreational uses such as rock hounding, hunting, and shooting.

There will be two public meetings to discuss the revision of the General Plan for Red Rock Canyon State Park.
