BLM Seeking Public Comment on Proposed Trail Near Dinosaur

BLMThe Bureau of Land Management and Dinosaur National Monument are seeking public comments on an environmental assessment of the proposed 1.3-mile Bull Canyon Rim Trail. The proposed trail would originate in the Monument’s Plug Hat Butte Picnic area off of Harpers Corner Road and traverse along the northern rim of Bull Canyon in the BLM Bull Canyon Wilderness Study Area. The BLM is seeing increased use in this area, and with no developed trail for people to use, they’re starting to see some impacts. The BLM says the trail would accommodate increasing recreational use while restoring some affected areas and protecting public safety. The first 550 feet of the trail crosses National Park Service-managed lands, with the remainder crossing BLM-managed lands. If approved, construction is anticipated to begin as early as mid-summer and is expected to take no more than two weeks to complete. You’ll find a set of instructions for making public comment below.  The assessment maps are available by clicking here.

Written comments on the proposed trail can be mailed to Aaron Grimes, BLM WRFO, 220 E. Market St, Meeker, CO 81641 or sent via email to agrimes@blm.gov. Comments will be most helpful if received by June 30, 2015.
Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, please be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.  While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
