KREMMLING, Colo. – The majority of seasonal restrictions to motorized travel on Bureau of Land Management lands north of Kremmling will be lifted on April 15.
The majority of designated roads and trails in the popular Wolford Mountain area will be open to recreational travel on April 15. The annual seasonal closures began Dec. 15 to protect wildlife and reduce road damage.
While snow melt has made the Wolford Mountain Area more accessible, the area roads and trails are not open for public motorized travel until April 15 to protect wintering deer and pronghorn.
Closures continue past April 15 each year on several specific roads and trails in the area to protect sensitive wildlife:
· The Wolford Mountain Single Track Trail remains closed through May 31.
· The Muddy Creek Trail north of the Muddy Creek fishing access bridge remains closed until July 31.
· The primitive road north of County Road 2201 remains closed through May 15
A map showing open travel routes is available on-line at www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/kfo.
Visitors to BLM lands in Grand County this spring may encounter other specific seasonal or temporary road closures in place to allow road maintenance or to protect sensitive wildlife. More information about these closures is available by contacting the Kremmling Field Office at (970) 724-3000.
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 multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
