Yep...Asbestos. The problem the EPA had was when groups rode, the people behind the main rider get heavily exposed. Personally, I never went there in the summer but a few times. We would wait until it rained and there was no dust. However, the EPA claims the exposure is still high when the ground is wet and no dust in the air
The guy at BLM doesn't get how this could be either!
I imagine one could accidentally get "lost" off the main road and end up at the crash site
The guy at BLM said it's not like the place is patrolled much when I asked about going up Spanish rd. Spanish is open to the Fresno Co. line but there are no signs to mark this point of closure.
