BLM to close lower Transfer Trail gate Monday


SILT, Colo. — The Bureau of Land Management will be closing the lower gate at Transfer Trail above Glenwood Springs Nov. 16 to maintain snow conditions for snowmobiling.

The gate will be reopened in the spring when conditions allow.

Transfer Trail is a popular snowmobile access point into the White River National Forest. Closing the road to larger vehicles helps prevent resource damage while maintaining a good snow base for snowmobiles and other winter recreation.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
