SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The trail passes through federally-managed lands under the administration of the BLM, NPS, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Army Corps of Engineers, and the Department of Defense, as well as through tribal lands, lands held in private hands, and lands under the administration of State and municipal agencies. The Old Spanish Trail was added to the National Trails System in 2002 in keeping with the National Trails System Act, to ‘‘promote the preservation of, public access to, travel within, and enjoyment and appreciation of the open PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 air, outdoor areas and historic resources of the Nation.’’ The trail runs from Abiquiu and Santa Fe (northern New Mexico) through Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona, to reach its terminus in Los Angeles, California, and includes some 2,700 miles along several historic routes. In its period of greatest use, from 1829 through 1848, the trail was traversed by mule pack-trains and horse-mounted traders bringing woolen goods west and herds of stock, primarily mules and horses, east to the burgeoning markets of the eastern United States and Mexico. Today, the trail crosses through or near public lands under the administration of six BLM States; two NPS regions, including 11 park units; 15 National Forests; and one National Wildlife Refuge. Over one-half the length of the trail route is in tribal, State, municipal, or private ownership and management. The CMP/EIS for the national historic trail will identify the administrative policies, objectives, processes, and management actions needed to protect trail resources and, where possible and appropriate, make these resources accessible to the public and available to serve the public’s needs for recreation, education, and heritage preservation. The CMP will describe the current condition of the trail route and trail resources; develop a vision and set goals for future preservation and development through consultation with the public, Native American communities, and traditional communities with interests in the history of the trail and the trail route, and trail resource owners and managers; and provide guidance for the preservation and development of these resources for the public benefit. Effective administration of the Old Spanish National Historic Trail will rely on the cooperative management efforts and support of Federal, tribal, State, local, and private interests, including landowners. The BLM and NPS will assume joint administration of the trail and will work together with the public to develop the CMP. Issue-driven planning themes identified to date include: • Defining a trail corridor that incorporates trail resource protection and desired visitor experiences; • Providing for education, interpretation, and recreation; • Incorporating multiple voices into trail interpretation; • Reconciling existing uses within the trail corridor with desired trail conditions; • Identifying economic opportunities related to the recreation use of the trail; and E:\FR\FM\18JAN1.SGM 18JAN1 erjones on PROD1PC68 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 11 / Wednesday, January 18, 2006 / Notices • Coordinating trail management among Federal, tribal, State, and local governmental agencies. More specifically, issues related to the themes identified above include possible conflicts between off-highway vehicle use, energy development, and trail site and segment preservation, protection, and appropriate use, and conflicts between existing uses, future uses, and the preservation of trail viewsheds through visual resource management. Any additional issues to be resolved through the plan will be identified during the public scoping period. An initial list of affected jurisdictions, interest groups, business, and landowners has been developed. A large mailing list has been generated by BLM and NPS that will be updated as the process continues. The mailing list will include all interested individuals, groups, and agencies that have participated in the process. Those who have participated in meetings or made written comments through the mail or the internet will be tracked throughout the process. Public participation elements will include, but not be limited to, public notices and press releases; newsletters and a project web page; public meetings (scoping, alternative development, and review of draft EIS); and depositories for public document review. Nearly 50 sovereign Indian Nations have expressed an affiliation with or an interest in the Old Spanish Trail. The trail planning effort will include full tribal participation and consultation throughout the process; a point of contact for tribal consultation will be designated to coordinate with American Indian constituencies during development of the CMP. The BLM and the NPS are committed to a collaborative planning approach in the development of the CMP. The plan development will involve other Federal agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the Department of Defense; American Indian Tribes and pueblos; State agencies in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, including Departments of Natural Resources, Transportation, Historic Preservation, and Parks; and county and municipal governmental agencies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The trail passes through federally-managed 
lands under the administration of the BLM, NPS, U.S. Forest Service, 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Army Corps of 
Engineers, and the Department of Defense, as well as through tribal 
lands, lands held in private hands, and lands under the administration 
of State and municipal agencies.
    The Old Spanish Trail was added to the National Trails System in 
2002 in keeping with the National Trails System Act, to ``promote the 
preservation of, public access to, travel within, and enjoyment and 
appreciation of the open air, outdoor areas and historic resources of 
the Nation.'' The trail runs from Abiquiu and Santa Fe (northern New 
Mexico) through Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona, to reach its 
terminus in Los Angeles, California, and includes some 2,700 miles 
along several historic routes. In its period of greatest use, from 1829 
through 1848, the trail was traversed by mule pack-trains and horse-
mounted traders bringing woolen goods west and herds of stock, 
primarily mules and horses, east to the burgeoning markets of the 
eastern United States and Mexico. Today, the trail crosses through or

regions, including 11 park units; 15 National Forests; and one National 
Wildlife Refuge. Over one-half the length of the trail route is in 
tribal, State, municipal, or private ownership and management.
    The CMP/EIS for the national historic trail will identify the 
administrative policies, objectives, processes, and management actions 
needed to protect trail resources and, where possible and appropriate, 
make these resources accessible to the public and available to serve 
the public's needs for recreation, education, and heritage 
preservation. The CMP will describe the current condition of the trail 
route and trail resources; develop a vision and set goals for future 
preservation and development through consultation with the public, 
Native American communities, and traditional communities with interests 
in the history of the trail and the trail route, and trail resource 
owners and managers; and provide guidance for the preservation and

     Providing for education, interpretation, and recreation;
     Incorporating multiple voices into trail interpretation;
     Reconciling existing uses within the trail corridor with 
desired trail conditions;
     Identifying economic opportunities related to the 
recreation use of the trail; and

    More specifically, issues related to the themes identified above 
include possible conflicts between off-highway vehicle use, energy 
development, and trail site and segment preservation, protection, and 
appropriate use, and conflicts between existing uses, future uses, and 
the preservation of trail viewsheds through visual resource management. 
Any additional issues to be resolved through the plan will be 
identified during the public scoping period.
    An initial list of affected jurisdictions, interest groups, 
business, and landowners has been developed. A large mailing list has 
been generated by BLM and NPS that will be updated as the process 
continues. The mailing list will include all interested individuals, 
groups, and agencies that have participated in the process. Those who 
have participated in meetings or made written comments through the mail 
or the internet will be tracked throughout the process. Public 
participation elements will include, but not be limited to, public 
notices and press releases; newsletters and a project web page; public

will include full tribal participation and consultation throughout the 
process; a point of contact for tribal consultation will be designated 
to coordinate with American Indian constituencies during development of

involve other Federal agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, the 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Army 
Corps of Engineers, and the Department of Defense; American Indian 
Tribes and pueblos; State agencies in California, Arizona, Nevada, 
Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, including Departments of Natural 
Resources, Transportation, Historic Preservation, and Parks; and county

groups, including private landowners, lessees, and permit holders, 
recreation groups, trail alliances and associations, museums and 
interpretive facilities, visitor services groups, historical societies, 
and scenic and back country byway organizations will be invited to 
participate in the development of the CMP. The BLM and NPS will work 
collaboratively with interested parties to identify alternatives that
