Big 5 Sections –  Access to Lands in Johnson & Sheridan Counties

The five sections of Wyoming State Trust Land known as the Big 5 have been of interest for outdoor enthusiasts for many years. The murky legal access has been lifted by efforts of Johnson County residents, lawyers, and other interested parties. PLUC is discussing ideas, and seeking input. If you are interested in working to establish public access to the northern reach of the Big 5 Sections, please come to our public meetings, or contact a board member.

The southern end of the Big 5 has a road, but no parking. Wyoming OSLI closed this area to motorized travel several years ago for safety reasons. Local citizens should contact their County Commissioners http://goo.gl/xqczKr, representatives, and OSLI Board Members to let them know access is important for quality outdoor experiences.

3-Poles HPMA Ride

High Plains Motocross Association (HPMA) will hold an orientation ride at 3-Poles Recreation Area on April 26, 2014. This is not a motocross event, but a discovery ride for HPMA members (weather permitting).

3-Poles Cleanup / Fixup Day – May 3, 2014

3-Poles Rec. Area Cleanup / Fixup Day is an opportunity for riders to help support PLUC and 3-Poles. Please bring work gloves, suntan lotion, and good attitudes. Crews will meet at 10AM, weather permitting.

For more information on 3-Poles or other PLUC activities, please come to our monthly meetings, or email info at pluc.info. Thank you for making 3-Poles Recreation Area work for everyone! 

Please do not park on the road (Pull into the 3-Poles parking area). We plan to apply for grants to upgrade the parking area with gravel, put shelters at 3-Poles for family picnics, traffic control signs, erosion control materials, cellphone extenders, and many more planned upgrades. Please be respectful of the site and fellow riders.
