Update March 3rd, 2014
In regards to bringing dogs:

You can find information on Sandy Ridge directly from the BLM here:

Because of some recent reported trail conflicts, they’ve added this language to the top of the webpage:

“The BLM has been made aware of reports of conflict between visitors. The BLM urges visitors with dogs to keep control of their animals at all times. We also ask that all visitors are polite and respectful of others and obey the posted rules and regulations.”

Posted rules at Sandy Ridge specify that dogs must be kept on leash at all times. These rules would also apply during the upcoming trail maintenance day. With a large number of attendees anticipated, keeping a dog under control on leash while doing trail work might be a challenge. Ultimately it’s your friend’s call, however we’d recommend following the BLM’s posted rules.
