The Bureau of Land Management released a draft environmental assessment that analyzes alternatives for managing more than 1,900 miles of roads and trails on 370,000 acres of BLM-administered lands in Moffat County.

The Little Snake Field Office in northwestern Colorado is undertaking a comprehensive, multi-year look at the roads and trails it manages in order to address current and future needs. This environmental assessment analyzes a range of alternatives for managing roads and trails on BLM lands between Maybell and Craig north to the Wyoming border. This area is referred to as Travel Management Area 2 and includes parts of the Powder Wash, Big Gulch, Seven Mile and Great Divide areas.

“Public involvement continues to be a key piece of this process,” said Little Snake Field Manager Bruce Sillitoe. “Our goal is a more efficient travel network, and public participation is essential.”
