Inaccessible State Lands in the West
In a follow-up to our 2018 Unlocking Public Lands Report, the TRCP and onX have identified an additional 6.35 million landlocked acres of state-owned public lands across the West. This new report also highlights the various ways states are addressing this access issue, so that effective solutions can be more widely adopted across the region.
