TRAIL ACCESS REPORT

By Bob Silbernagel

The American Horse Council has released its 2010 report on horseback access to trails on public lands. Because the survey size is limited, it isn't advertised as an exhaustive report on trail access. But, when taken with the 2009 report, it offers some insight on where trail access problems may be occurring.

One of the issues mentioned — in fact the only one on BLM land and one of only a couple of concerns related to Colorado — was a complaint over the fact that the Bangs Canyon Special Recreation Area south of Grand Junction is closed to equestrians. But that area has never been regularly used by trail riders, although I know a few people who rode there years ago. Now, it is a small area to serve primarily rock-crawler, four-wheel-drive enthusiasts.
