Motorized travel restrictions on Wolford Mountain begin Dec. 15 (12-09-13)


KREMMLING, Colo.  – The Bureau of Land Management will begin its annual winter restrictions on motorized travel north of Kremmling in the 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 in most areas. 
 
“We have these restrictions to help reduce disturbance to wildlife in this key wintering area,” said Kremmling Field Manager Stephanie Odell. “We are reminding the public to observe these restrictions and also to report any violations they see.”
 
The Wolford Mountain area includes public lands between Highway 40 and Grand County Road 2 (Back Troublesome Road). A map showing open travel routes are available on-line at www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/kfo.html
 
Maps are also available at the Kremmling Field Office, 2103 E. Park Ave., and information kiosks on County Road 224 near the former landfill, County Road 26 off of Highway 40, County Road 227, and at the intersection of County Roads 22 and 25. 
 
The seasonal restrictions are extended in two areas of Wolford Mountain to protect nesting raptors: the Wolford Mountain Single Track closure continues through May 31and the Muddy Creek Trail north of the Muddy Creek fishing access bridge is closed until July 31.
 
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. Changing conditions may cause the restrictions to be modified 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.
