It’s time to submit comments in support of trails and trail connects to the BLM.

Comments are due next week and submitting comments now is a great idea.

The BLM has released scoping requesting public comment on the Travel Planning Document related to our area (LaPlata, Montezuma, counties). Trails 2000 proposed more than a dozen trail concepts and unfortunately most are not included in the draft plan. Planning document look into the future, certainly we can expect that Durango will look much different in 15-20 years. and additional trails and trail connections will be more important as people seek to get out of their cars, improve their health and give back. Trails 2000 has been planning, building and maintaining trails for almost 30 years; and encouraging stewardship and volunteerism during that time.

Comments are due May 22  and we highly encourage you to email comment this week: 

BLM Proposes to:

  • Closing end of Perins Gulch to bikes
  • ReRoute and add trails on Animas Mountain making a few trails downhill bike only and other pedestrian-only
  • Closing skid ridge (in Overend) to bikes as it enters from Overend into B
  • Closing Old Car Loop (when a loop could be made)
