Wolford Mountain travel restrictions remain in effect through April 15
KREMMLING – The Bureau of Land Management reminds the public that the annual winter travel restrictions in the Wolford Mountain area north of Kremmling remain in effect through April 15 to protect wintering wildlife and reduce road and resource damage.
“Although we’ve had some warm weather, the wildlife is still on the winter range and the roads are very muddy,” said BLM Kremmling Field Manager Dave Stout. “We’re urging the public to observe this closure and to report any violations they see.”
The Wolford Mountain area is a popular recreation area for not only local residents but also for residents of surrounding counties such as Eagle and Summit. As spring approaches and the weather improves, the number of violations of this seasonal closure increases. The closure includes BLM-administered lands between U.S. Highway 40 and Grand County Road 2 (Gunsight Pass Area) north of Kremmling. It also includes the BLM lands in this area that are west of U.S. Highway 40.
Maps showing open travel routes are available at information kiosks on County Road 224 near the landfill, the junction of County Road 25 (Antelope Pass Road) and County Road 22, and along County Road 26 off of Highway 40. Information and maps are also available at the Kremmling Field Office. All other travel routes and areas on BLM-administered lands within the Wolford Mountain area are currently closed to all motorized and mechanized use.
Additionally, motorized travel will not be allowed on the single track motorcycle trail over Wolford Mountain until June 1.
To report violations or for further information regarding the Wolford Mountain area travel restrictions, please visit or call the Kremmling Field Office, 2103 E. Park Ave., 970-724-3000.
