Little Snake Travel Management Plan

Thirtyone M Mtn (Herd of elk atop 31 M Mtn) IMG_2614-2In Northwest Colorado, travel routes are an emerging focus for balanced use of our public lands. Our love for trails is enormously important and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) needs to hear from Coloradans about accessing and protecting the beautiful cliffs, deep canyons, and iconic landscapes of our state. The BLM has begun Travel Management Plans (TMPs) that will be literal “road maps” for the future of the roads, paths, and trails traversing public lands in this corner of our state.

 

Vermillion Creek by SashaThe BLM’s Little Snake Field Office is evaluating the roads and trails in Vermillion Basin, Sand Wash Basin, Hiawatha, Little Bear’s Ears, and surrounding lands.

These places are home to some of the country’s best elk hunting areas. In fact, the nearby town of Craig has been called the “Elk Capitol of the World!”

Conservation Colorado is working to make sure travel management plans strike a balance between access for motorized vehicles, quiet use, and sanctuaries for wildlife.
