To promote trail stewardship, develop and maintain sustainable trails, and promote positive trail interactions among all trail users in the scenic Mancos Valley.
Things are opening up but many things are still snowed in. The snow line seems to be close to 10,500 – 11,000 feet in the spruce depending on aspect and where you are at in District. Many creeks are still running very high and the West Mancos and West Dolores are still largely impassable. Be careful out there and let me know if you have any additional reports.
