The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are re-asserting ownership of a popular trail system in Pocatello, Idaho.

According to the tribe, the City Creek Trailhead has always been on the reservation. Chairman Blane Edmo recently planted tribal ownership signs at the property, some of which have since been vandalized.

"We are looking forward to cooperating with users of the City Creek trailhead area to provide for continued safe, responsible, environmentally sensitive use of the area," Chairman Blaine Edmo said in a press release.

According to the tribe, the Interior Department confirmed its ownership of the property in 2012. But the Bureau of Land Management, an agency of Interior, is providing conflicting information on the matter, which involves a right-of-way that had been granted to a railroad.

“The BLM received a relinquishment of certain lands, formerly a railroad right of way, in the City Creek area from the Union Pacific Railroad in 2014,” the agency said in a press release, The Idaho State Journal reported. “The area remains open to the public while further reviews occur.”

The city of Pocatello issued a statement on Wednesday saying it would work with the tribe if the land indeed remains under tribal ownership.
