Mosier Gulch Access Road May Experience Temporary Winter Closures


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office (BFO) would like to inform the public that during the winter and spring a portion of the Mosier Gulch Road within the picnic area could be temporarily closed. The road is very steep, and to prevent resource damage and rutting from vehicular traffic the BFO will close the road temporarily during wet or icy conditions.

The portion of the road that could be closed includes the 700-foot stretch beyond the picnic area parking lot. Vehicular access to the parking lot, picnic site, and Clear Creek Trailhead will not be affected. Visitors are asked to park at the upper picnic area and walk via the Clear Creek Trail or the road to access Clear Creek during closures.

The Mosier Gulch Road was improved during the spring of 2010. Temporary closures will reduce maintenance thus saving the taxpayers’ money. The BFO would like to remind citizens that even when the road is open for vehicular travel icy conditions might exist.

For more information, contact the BLM Buffalo Field Office at (307) 684-1100.



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.
