Please take some time to review the message below from Colorado Trails Preservation Alliance and help our friends at Central Colorado Mountain Riders & CORE!‼️ Rider Feedback Needed in Central Colorado - June 20th deadlinePlease watch this video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN3o3RDTy3w) for detailed information on our concerns. A citizen planning group, Envision Chaffee County, has produced a Draft Recreation Plan for the Salida and Buena Vista areas in Central Colorado. Within this plan, we have identified some issues and concerns we would like to share with you:- Sidestepping Federally-mandated public processes aka Travel Management Planning (TMP)- Survey questions are deceptively worded and leading- Inadequate sample size of respondents related to user size Send your feedback While it is possible to submit responses through the Envision website - we encourage you to send an email directly to the Chaffee County Commissioners, Chaffee County Planning & Zoning and Cindy Williams the co-chair of Envision Recreation in Balance co-chair.Contact info:Commissioner Greg Felt (ERiB Co-Chair) - gfelt@chaffeecounty.orgCommissioner Keith Baker - kbaker@chaffeecounty.orgCommissioner Rusty Granzella - rgranzella@chaffeecounty.orgPlanning and Zoning Dan Swallow - dswallow@chaffeecounty.orgPlanning and Zoning Jon Roorda - jroorda@chaffeecounty.orgPlanning and Zoning Christie Barton - cbarton@chaffeecounty.orgCindy Williams (ERiB Co-Chair) - cindy@envisionchaffeecounty.orgCopy all email addresses at once to paste into your 'to" field:gfelt@chaffeecounty.org, kbaker@chaffeecounty.org, rgranzella@chaffeecounty.org, dswallow@chaffeecounty.org, jroorda@chaffeecounty.org, cbarton@chaffeecounty.org, cindy@envisionchaffeecounty.orgInfo to include in your message:Who you are - if you are a Chaffee County resident, be sure to mention it!What you like to do in Chaffee County (riding, camping, hiking, etc)The citizen planning group Envision should not be attempting to assume Travel Management Planning this is a process that is already facilitated by land agencies US Forest Service (USFS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM.) Specifically their outline of arbitrary Voluntary Seasonal Closures, Recreation development “no go” zones, and identifying areas of critical wildlife habitat in a county Recreation Plan.That’s it - clean, simple, and to the point. The more input the better and this is all you need to say!Link to Envision Chaffee County Draft Recreation Plan:mk0envisionchafrnvlf.kinstacdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/The-Chaffee-Recreation-Plan_FINAL_D... ...

It won’t take long to dry out but it is still just a little early to be trying to ride the north facing high elevation stuff including the trails around Rico.We feel we have an outstanding membership base and motorized singletrack community in the Four-Corners area but if you see someone doing something wrong please utilize the coaching moment and tell them about the principles of Stay The Trail.We kindly ask that you don’t ride muddy trails, go around snowbanks or down trees and stay off of trails that aren’t open due to seasonal closures or designated for motorized use. Remember to use COTREX to find information on trail designations and seasonal closures. ... See MoreSee Less

For our Hermosa Creek folks:#Alert Starting Friday, June 4th, Southwest Conservation Corps will begin hazard tree mitigation along the first 5 miles of Hermosa Creek Trail. The work will start in the campground and progress north to Dutch Creek through out the summer. Additional construction work will also begin on the trail later this month. Forest visitors should expect to see workers and machinery in the area. For the safety of trail users and workers, visitors may be asked to wait in certain areas if workers are falling hazard trees nearby. Please be alert, provide space to workers, and pay attention to signs! #KnowBeforeYouGo ... See MoreSee Less

A valuable message from Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association C.B.M.B.A.:Harden up buttercup & don’t braid trails!Man, braiding trails sucks, but braiding roads so you can shuttle closer to the trail start instead of just RIDING YOUR BIKE is the ALL time worst. This is the stuff the agencies, the landowners see, then start hashing out more rules and restrictions. Mtn bikers are better than this, and this crap leaves a bad stain. Dr. Park is impacted enough, and when we ask to put in more DH trails and directional trails... this is why the answer here is NO! They don't want more of this. A 13 and a 15 year old rode the full Dr. Park loop today, harden up buttercup - RIDE YOUR BIKE! ... See MoreSee Less

We’re certain if they reopened these trails to motorized singletrack users our hard working and efficient members would have these trails cleared in very little time. The swift clearing of the trails in the Hermosa Drainage after the 416 Fire by our Membership for the enjoyment by all multi-use singletrack users is a perfect example of this. ... See MoreSee Less
