Milo and Lynn with the FS have been notified. Sheriff BeShaver also.
I don't get it??? what does this mean?
It means that an individual with private property the borders public land has put a locked gate denying access to forest land.
Happens all the time in NM - with the USFS blessing.
We are not stopping anyone from any access to any PUBLIC Lands. We ARE STRICTLY enforcing are private property rights as you do as well. Come visit me at Walters bridge. Yes!, Access to Cliff Lake just got ALOT harder. walk in from Kerr lake. Just simply stay off private land. I know it’s a difficult change but FS and other agencies are in agreement.

The road behind Walter Bakers place May or may not be a public road but it dead ends at the gate on top which I have locked. It is the start of private property. the “Road“ on other side of fence is NOT PUBLIC. so even If you walk on the road behind fence to cliff lake- you are trespassing. Consult a official fs map and you’ll see the boundaries. Respect private property, FS rangers, game warden and sheriff have been notified that my siblings and I will be securing access on private lands. I understand how for years people have been mistakenly trespassin.g.
The access from Jasper does enter the JRC property and ends on JRC property at the gate bordering Forest Service Land. There is no trail head at the end of the JRC property. I just added the map with the road to better clarify what is private land. Hope this helps others understand the situation. You can come in from Kerr Lake side it's just a bit of a hike.
so we can go up the road to where it enters section 81???
A little confused as well. So are you able to, or not able to head to cliff lake from Jasper? Or do you strictly have to hike from kerr lake to cliff lake?
Yes that means you can't access cliff lake from jasper. But the. forest service has a perfectly good road from Kerr lake that is currently locked up, and it is on forest service land. Perhaps if enough people request that road be opened back up the general public. After all most of cliff lake is on public land and as a tax payer I am entitled to access it as I have done for the last 40 years.... Unfortunately if that forest service road is reopened it will mean a lot more people will have an easier access to cliff lake but that's about our only option.
That's too bad....
