Hikers upset over land swap between Agua Caliente Band and BLM
Hikers in Palm Springs, California, are trying to stop a land swap between the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and the Bureau of Land Management.

Hikers are worried that the tribe will limit access to popular trails. They are also worried about development, which the tribe says isn't likely.

The BLM is taking public comments on the swap until November 15.
