Help Preserve Access to Famous Colorado Trails
-- Buffalo Creek, Monarch Crest, Colorado Trail, and Leadville, Salida,
Colorado Springs areas affected
A series of important public meetings in January and February will help determine the future of some of Colorado's best mountain biking trails. Mountain bikers are encouraged to attend these meetings and request our continued access to epic rides like the Monarch Crest Trail, Buffalo Creek, sections of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trails, and numerous trails near Colorado Springs, Salida, Leadville, and Pueblo.
The Pike and San Isabel (PSI) National Forests are revising their management plan, which will determine how forest lands and trails will be managed for the next 15-20 years. The PSI is also undergoing separate planning to determine which trails will be open to OHV use. Both planning processes will be addressed at the public meetings.
Let the Forest Service know that mountain bikers care about protecting the environment and responsible recreation. Your attendance is crucial to help preserve access to our favorite trails.
For more information, visit the Forest Plan revision website.
Meetings are scheduled for the following locations and dates:
1. Leadville, CO: 1/17/07; 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.; National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum, 120 W. 9th St.

Shoup road is the Black Forest. Easiest way to get there is to take hwy 83 North. It is a couple of miles north of the Powers road interchange.
