Dallas Creek Eastside Trails Project

Western Colorado Area Office Home   Environmental Documents 

The Ridgway area is increasing in population and popularity as a destination area for tourism due to year-round public land access and a wide variety of recreational opportunities (BLM 2012).  The citizens of the Town of Ridgway have expressed interest in expanding recreational opportunities for the surrounding communities and tourism industry.  Local groups such as the Ridgway Area Trails Group and the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association have shown interest in an inter-connecting trail system to establish more mountain biking, hiking, and trail running opportunities. 

The purpose of the Dallas Creek Eastside Tails Project is to provide a sustainably designed trail system to promote quality recreational opportunities while maintaining the biotic integrity of the area and protecting the area's ability to help support wintering deer and elk populations.
