Most motorized routes north of Kremmling to open April 15
Ryan Summerlin April 11, 2014
The majority of seasonal restrictions to motorized travel on Bureau of Land Management lands north of Kremmling will be lifted on April 15.
The seasonal closures begin Dec. 15 each year to protect wildlife and reduce road damage. Some closures continue past April 15 each year on several specific roads and trails in the area to protect sensitive wildlife:
• The Wolford Mountain Single Track Trail remains closed until June 1
• The Muddy Creek Trail north of the Muddy Creek Fishing Access parking area bridge to the Power Line Road remains closed until Aug. 1
• Routes east of County Road 22 and north of County Road 2201, and the northern most route on BLM-administered lands along County Road 25 remain seasonally closed until May 15
Maps showing open travel routes are available at www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/kfo.html at the Kremmling Field Office, and at information kiosks on County Road 224 near the old landfill, County Road 26 off of Highway 40, County Road 227, and at the intersection of County Roads 22 and 25.
“Some big game may still be on the winter range because of heavy snows this winter,” said Stephanie Odell, field manager for the Kremmling Field Office. “Please give wildlife in these areas a wide berth to minimize disturbance.”
