The Little Snake Field Office in Northwest Colorado is taking a comprehensive, multi-year look at the roads and trails it manages to address current and future needs.

The Bureau of Land Management recently 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. 

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, referred to as Travel Management Area 2, 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.”
