    Yes. Many of the homeowners up there want the trail closed. Apparently they don't like seeing anyone having fun.

    UT passed a law last year that allows the state to take federal land under eminent domain. With oil skyrocketing, I am willing to bet the first use of the law will be to re-open the oil fields to drilling.
