Gunnison, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Gunnison Field Office is accepting comments on a proposal to construct 20 miles of new, non-motorized trails in the Signal Peak area near Gunnison.

As BLM begins developing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify potential impacts to natural resources and conflicts with current recreation uses, it wants to hear any issues or concerns from the public.

“We are looking to enhance the overall recreation experience in the area while balancing natural and cultural resource protection,” said Gunnison Field Office Manager Elijah Waters. “Visitors and residents alike love these trails, and local input is indispensable as we work towards making a decision.”

In 2015, recreation activities on BLM-managed lands generated $543 million and supported 4,625 jobs in Colorado.

To view a summary and map of the proposed action, and get instructions on how to comment, please visit the BLM’s ePlanning website at A public meeting will be held at Western State Colorado University, on April 27 at 7 p.m. to discuss the proposal.

Comments will be accepted until Monday, May 22 and can be mailed to the Gunnison Field Office, Attn: Jim Lovelace, 2010 West Spencer Avenue, Suite A, Gunnison, CO 81230 or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
