Primitive Recreation

The BLM did not recognize primitive or unconfined recreation in the Coglan Buttes area, noting that the opportunities present were not unique to that unit. ONDA disagreed. In 2018, the BLM recognized a host of recreational opportunities, including hiking and wildlife viewing, along the 14-mile-long escarpment.

Naturalness

In their 2012 inventory, the BLM did not consider the Beatys Butte area to be in a natural condition. ONDA disagreed. In their 2018 inventory, the BLM found the lands around Beatys Butte to possess naturalness.

Solitude

Citing the open nature of the landscape, the BLM did not find Burma Rim to provide opportunities for solitude. ONDA disagreed, and, in 2018, the BLM found solitude here.

Next step

In 2019, the Bureau of Land Management will decide how best to manage these lands through the Lakeview Resource Management Plan.
