BYU working to buy “Y,” trail

BYU is in the process of purchasing 80 acres containing the historic Y with its accompanying trail on Y Mountain from the Forest Service.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, introduced a bill in April that allowed BYU to purchase the land for fair-market value. Chaffetz’s bill proposal stated BYU will own and service all of the land while maintaining high levels of public access. Other BYU alums, including Rep. Eni Faleomavaega, D-America Samoa, Rep.
