1. The Saline Valley Road might be improved: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=30552

2. The scoping comment period is open for developing plans in the popular Warm Springs soaking area of Saline Valley: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?documentID=47178

3. A recent court decision is keeping a potential road in the Last Chance Range closed, and a few others proposed by Inyo County failed to meet a filing deadline:

I wonder how long the 'Last Chance Road' had gone without maintenance. I was looking for that road last year, and it appeared to have been left to return to the wild for a very long time. It seems that Inyo County may have only wanted to reopen the road when they realized that the window of opportunity was closing.

Other old roads into the nearby Sylvania Mountains Wilderness are now great hiking trails.
