CBMBA Fat Bike Grooming #50486

Commenting on This Project

The Gunnison Ranger District of the Grand Mesa Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests (GMUG) is providing the opportunity for public comment on the proposal to groom 37.3 miles around Crested Butte in Gunnison County Colorado for multiple winter uses including bicycling skiing and snowshoeing.

The Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association (CBMBA) is proposing to groom 9.4 miles surrounding Mt. Crested Butte including: North Village; Woods and Crusader trails at Crested Butte Mountain Resort; and CR 317 to the Gothic town-site. The proposal includes 9.9 miles of single-track grooming in the Brush Creek drainage following Brush Creek Road (NFSR 738) Strand Bonus/Canal Trail and Ferris Creek Road (NFSR 736). CBMBA also proposes 18 miles of grooming in the Cement Creek drainage following Cement Creek Road (NFSR 740).

All proposed areas will remain open to multiple use as designated under the 1995 and 2005 environmental decisions. CBMBA has stressed that the proposed grooming will provide a recreation amenity all users can enjoy and they plan to partner with other organizations to provide education and proper signage.
