ELY, Nev. The Bureau of Land Management has issued a decision for the Mount Irish Cultural Resource Protection and Visitor Improvements Project to build four primitive campsites with picnic tables and fire rings, as well as the installation of a vault toilet, in the vicinity of Paiute Rocks and Shaman Knob.

“These improvements will help to protect natural and significant cultural resources. They will enhance the recreational experience and provide for public safety,” BLM’s Alicia Styles said.

Styles said visitation to Mount Irish has increased from 100 people in 2006 to nearly 900 people in 2018, resulting in resource impacts and health and safety issues.
