Zapata Falls Campground Closes for Three Days During Volunteer Work (05-01-13)

MONTE VISTA, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Zapata Falls campground will be closed May 10 through 12 while Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado build a new user trail. The campground will reopen to the public on Monday, May 13.

VOC is completing the new trail near the area’s campground. When completed, the trail will be more than 3 miles in length and open to hiking and mountain biking.

“We chose this location because it is one of the best areas managed by the San Luis Valley Field Office to sustainably support downhill-mountain biking,” said Clayton Davey, BLM Park Ranger. “The slope and soil types are ideal for this type of use.”

For more information about the campground closure or VOC work, please contact Brink Messick at 719-580-1268.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
