PRICE , Utah — Nine Mile Canyon , a place of rich heritage and solitude , will receive improvements to the visitor experience through a decision issued by the Bureau of Land Management . The enhancements will improve trails and parking areas and provide education outreach for historic and prehistoric cultural sites within the canyon located in Carbon and Duchesne counties . “The archaeological heritage of Nine Mile Canyon is fragile and irreplaceable , ” said BLM Acting Price Field Manager Kyle Beagley . “It is the Bureau’s objective to better manage the increased visitation to this incredibly important resource . Currently , there is only minimal interpretation of the identified cultural sites or onsite visitor education on how to properly view these sensitive locations . ” Nine Mile Canyon offers visitors unique recreation opportunity and incredible photography locations with an almost unbroken gallery of rock imagery and stunning landscapes . With consideration to public input periods , the BLM will start work on projects in 2022 and will work closely with operators and county partners . The improvements will benefit cultural and recreational resources by encouraging visitors to recreate responsibly within BLM managed public lands . A strong infrastructure has always been a goal for the BLM and is a priority of the Biden - Harris administration’s efforts to Build Back Better . For more information , please visit the project website at https://go . usa . gov/xzW35 . The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states , including Alaska , on behalf of the American people . The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub - surface mineral estate throughout the nation . Our mission is to sustain the health , diversity , and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations .
