Wolford Mountain travel restrictions begin Dec. 15



KREMMLING, Colo.  – The Bureau of Land Management Kremmling Field Office will begin its annual winter travel restrictions on Wolford Mountain Travel Management Area Dec. 15 to help reduce stress on wintering big game herds. These restrictions to motorized travel will remain in effect through April 15.

“We have these restrictions to help reduce disturbance to wildlife in this key wintering area,” said Kremmling Field Manager Dave Stout. “We are reminding the public to observe these restrictions and also to report any violations they see.”

BLM actively patrols this area and will issue citations to those found violating the restrictions. The affected area includes public lands between U.S. Highway 40, Grand County Road 22 (Back Troublesome Road) and Grand County Road 2 (Gunsight Pass).

Maps showing open travel routes are available for viewing at the Kremmling Field Office as well as information kiosks on County Road 224 near the landfill, County Road 26 off of U.S. Highway 40, County Road 227, and at the intersection of County Roads 22 and 25.

Snowmobile use is restricted to routes marked with orange diamonds on the kiosk maps. All other travel routes and areas on BLM lands on Wolford Mountain will be closed to all motorized use. Horse, foot, and ski travel typically will be permitted throughout the area during winter travel restrictions. Winter conditions may cause the Field Manager to change or alter restrictions in the Wolford area, so check often for restriction updates.

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. Additional information is also available at http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/kfo.html.
