Public Observation Opportunities

The gather has been completed, so there are no public viewinf opportunities. The public viewing opportunity information is being left on the webpage for reference.

When can I visit?

Each day of the gather will be open for public viewing. Please call the gather hotline at 970-878-3818 for information about daily public viewing opportunities. The BLM will update the hotline nightly for information on where and when to meet as well as expected viewing conditions.

The BLM is committed to providing opportunities for public access while securing public safety in this rugged and remote area of the White River Field Office. 

Know before you go:

BLM staff and the public will caravan to designated viewing sites from predetermined locations each day. You must bring your own high-clearance, four-wheel drive vehicle to access the viewing sites.

Some public viewing areas may require a short hike to access. Please be prepared to be outside in the elements for an extended period. There will be no facilities in the area.

The contractor and operations chief will establish public viewing areas near each trap site that are safe and unlikely to affect operations. Some days and some public viewing areas will accommodate public access better than others.

If you have binoculars or a telephoto lens, you may want to bring them to get a better view.

Because this gather will take place outside the Herd Management Area, each trap site will likely contain small groups of horses.

The length of gather operations may vary day by day.
